Assess Microbial Levels
The first step in mitigating microbial growth is to assess the level of microbes prior to treatment. Information regarding overall population is important to determine the best course of action. Generate specific treatment KPI’s for microbial control before job commencement such as:
- determining target dosages
Our Technical Team offer field testing products and technical services, on-site or in the lab, providing reliable, informative results to support your microbial control program.
OSP Technical Centre
The OSP Technical Centre is a full-service lab offering complete microbial testing including:
- LifeCheck DNA 16S Sequencing
- DNA qPCR
- ATP Tests
- Growth Media Tests
- Biocide Selection Studies (Kill Studies)
- and more
Outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment and complete safety controls, OSP is armed to accept your liquid (source, flowback, produced) and solid (pipe segments, coiled tubing, pig returns) samples.
Did you know various microbes are present within source waters?
You can't mitigate what you can't measure. The first step is to identify the microbial threats. Understand and measure the microbial communities present. Use the data to drive microbial control programs. And avoid problematic outcomes when the well is brought onto production.

Since 2014, Omega Treating Chemicals has been engaging OSP and their team for science related challenges, technical lab support, microbial testing services, scale support and sales support. The team at OSP feels like an extension of our team, always willing and able to respond, offering holistic client support from lab to field to sales. With a fantastic collaborative partnership over the years, when we are looking to problem solve, we never hesitate to call OSP.
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you so much for our partnership. I cannot ask for a better partnership than the one I have with OSP. The dedication, time and effort to help us get up and going with ATP testing is something that has not gone unrecognized. It is truly amazing to see that wonderful customer service still lives in our industry. This type of partnership is one we will continue to have and grow together.
During a follow up conversation with a Coiled Tubing client, they let us know they are getting significantly longer life out of their coil. On average they are experiencing 1.1 million running feet out of a coil string, compared to the industry average of approximately 600,000 running feet. They feel it all comes back to their commitment to monitoring and treatment program recommendations made by OSP, inclusive of LifeCheck ATP testing and biocide treatment of the water.
At first, I was a bit skeptical ordering ATP equipment and supplies from North America, concerned with long shipping times to Norway and overall service support. OSP mitigated these concerns, with superior customer service, surprising response times and expedited shipping. They would promptly let me know my questions or request was received, providing high quality service and expertise. I am repeatedly surprised by the extra effort OSP provides on all levels.
