Microbial and sulfide control programs
Improve production, safely enhance asset integrity management
Control microbial-influenced corrosion (MIC) safely and effectively with our registered biocides and non-biocidal additives, and mitigate operational risk. Our customized biocide solutions and advanced monitoring services help you control MIC and extend the life of production assets. We identify the type of microbes in your production system, the level of contamination, and help you develop a detailed treatment plan to curtail the microbial activity.
Microbial proliferation restricts production, leading to corrosion-related asset failures and raises concerns for potential environmental and personnel safety. Hydrogen sulfide, the metabolic byproduct from certain pervasive bacteria types, also can pose a serious health and safety risk to workers on the jobsite and to nearby communities. Our experts can help you take control of microbes whether in fracturing, chemical injection, or production operations.
Achieve fast, onsite MIC DNA testing
Our FieldXtract™ microbial genetic service performs the same biotechnology tests as typical offsite labs, but without the delay and hassle of shipping samples and waiting for results. Now, in a matter of hours, you can quickly confirm the identity of the microbe type and implement the right treatment solution to protect your assets. Contact your representative to learn how you can efficiently enhance your integrity management programs, produce more safely, and reduce operational risks with FieldXtract service.
Our biocide, H2S and sulfide control solutions can help mitigate reservoir and system souring and help you deal with sour production:
• PETROSWEET™ H2S scavengers for H2S removal and system sweetening
• Microbial control programs including bacteria monitoring and X-CIDE biocides
• Sour-service corrosion inhibitors
• MAGNATREAT™ M sulfide scavenger for H2S and iron sulfide removal
• Reservoir souring control additives
When iron sulfide is your issue, turn to us for advanced, comprehensive iron sulfide control services.
Being proactive and staying ahead of oilfield microbial activity can
• increase your production uptime
• prevent injector plugging & reduce operational risk
• lower your HSE risks
