When planning a trip you have you start with the destination in mind. You don’t want to end up in the wrong location, with the wrong currency, trying to speak a language you don’t understand. So how do you set yourself up for success? You need to know where you’re going, when you’re going to get there and what you will need when you’re there.

Now, let’s look at this from the perspective of an Operator. Much like planning a trip, you want to design your well plan to set up your producing well for success. Part of that success means preventing the impacts that microbes can have on production like well souring or MIC.
