Case Study: Production Fluid

Recently a client came to us with concerns of the microbial community present in their production fluid after experiencing microbial related problems at their production field .

The OSP Technical Team conducted LifeCheck ATP and LifeCheck DNA qPCR analyses in order to quantify the total microbial load, and identify which microbes were present in the field, particularly those that may cause production related problems. The recommendation back to the client was to complete a biocide selection study to select the appropriate chemistry that would control (and minimize) the microbial population and reduce risks to production assets.
