|Simultaneously quantify microbes involved in Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion and Oilfield Souring in a single analysis.|
Microbial influenced corrosion (MIC) impacts nearly all industries and can exact a severe toll in terms of loss of production, O&M costs, deterioration of equipment and potentially the health, safety, and environmental consequences of corrosion related failure. MIC and souring are complex processes that depend on the actions and interactions of diverse bacterial communities of not only sulfate reducing bacteria but also acid producing bacteria, methanogens, iron oxidizers, slime formers, denitrifiers, and sulfur oxidizing bacteria. The QuantArray provides simultaneous quantification of key organisms and functional genes involved in MIC as well as oilfield souring proving a more comprehensive assessment. All of the organisms listed below are included in a single QuantArray analysis.
Evaluation of the microorganisms present within a system permits managers to:
