The Multi-Chem line of biocides and biological control technologies are formulated to control deleterious micro-organisms in water used in frac jobs and production systems, and help maintain asset integrity and mitigate potential problems, such as microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC), biomass accumulation, biogenic sulfide production, oil carryover, and polymer degradation.
- Control system fouling from biomass and biofilm formation and protect against microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC);
- Protect formations from externally induced bacterial contamination which can sour oil and gas production;
- Control the accumulation of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB)-generated hydrogen sulfide and iron sulfide in production equipment and vessels, which could potentially lead to failures, system downtime, high operating expenses, reduced hydrocarbon production, and safety concerns due to possible H2S exposure; and
- Reduce biological contamination from wellbores previously contaminated using untreated fluids.
