Microbial activity in injection and produced water can inhibit operation efficiency, leading to corrosion, sulfide release and fouling of the reservoir, tubulars and surface equipment. Our leading microbial solutions for injection and produced water treatment remove bacteria to increase operational efficiency in water flooding and enhanced oil recovery operations.

Whether you need treatment technologies for injection water or produced water reuse or disposal, our microbial control solutions will help you control costs and meet specifications or regulatory guidelines.
