Microbes cause billions of dollars in damage each year in the oil and gas industry.LEARN MORE
Isn’t it time we stopped using bug bottles that detect less than 1% of microbes?
Determining the presence of microbes and the roles they play in corrosion within the oil and gas industry is vital. Therefore 16S Technologies provides a diagnostic and continuous monitoring service to ensure that corrosion causing microorganisms do not reach problematic and costly levels.
Annual spend on corrosion
by US Oil and Gas Companies
Active wells upstream;
34% have biocorrosion
Cost per well if
Percentage of wells with
biocorrosion that fail
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.
We use data analytics to predict the consequences of these microbes in engineered systems.
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
