Oil and Gas
NCIMB's oilfield services can help you to assess the risk of microbially influenced corrosion and ensure your operations comply with environmental regulations.
Our experienced microbiologists are experts in identifying and quantifying the groups of microorganisms that can influence oilfield corrosion and cause reservoir souring. We can use a range of techniques depending on your specific requirements, including culture-based testing, qPCR, 16S sequencing and metagenomic characterisation via next-generation sequencing (NGS). We can also undertake biocide testing to help you determine the most effective means of controlling their numbers.
NCIMB provides a one-stop-shop oilfield chemistry testing service, and undertakes whole effluent assessment using MARA and LumiMARA bioassays, as part of a risk based approach for management of produced water.
