Case Study: Corrosion

Recently a client came to us with concerns about water line corrosion. The OSP Technical Team conducted LifeCheck DNA qPCR on the pipe and fluids testing for microbes that contribute to MIC related issues. It was determined MIC microbes were present. The recommendation back to the client was to complete a biocide selection study to optimize the microbial control program and reduce risks to production assets.



Mitigating microbial growth is paramount for preventing issues such as microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) and souring in oil and gas applications, demanding reliable testing and a team of experts committed to your microbial mitigation strategy. At OSP we understand immediate microbial results are important for the implementation of an appropriate control program which can be challenging to achieve with lean teams or sample transportation. To help meet these challenges our LifeCheck® Resources microbial identification and evaluation experts provide technical services, on-site or in the lab. We commit to providing you with reliable results to support your microbial mitigation strategy.
