$11.8 Billion

Annual spend on corrosion
by US Oil and Gas Companies

16S icons-biocorrosion-dark-green

1.6 Million

Active wells upstream;
34% have biocorrosion

16S icons-untreated-dark-green

$200 Thousand

untreated correctly

16S icons-fai-dark-green


Percentage of wells with
biocorrosion that fail

16S icons-remedial-dark-green

$5.5 Billion

Remedial cost to repair failed wells
(this number is expected to exponentially
increase due to the use of produced
recycled water for fracing)


We utilize genomic and transcriptomic sequencing in our lab to understand the distribution of microbes in a field.

Data analytics

We use data analytics to predict the consequences of these microbes in engineered systems.

Chemical selection

We target antimicrobial chemicals to predict high risk microbes increasing efficiencies.


We deliver flow assurance at reduced OPEX.

Reduce chemical spend and failure frequency in your asset
16S Technologies can customize a biocide plan to treat the genomics
of your wells, reducing chemical spend and failure frequency
