Oil Microecology

Oil Microecology

Oil is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons that often exists in underground geologic sedimentary rock. Oil provides important energy for mankind. In the process of discovering and exploiting oil fields, microbes play an increasingly important role. Many fuels such as oil are formed under the long-term direct action of various microbes. Without the transformation and decomposition of many microbes, ancient biological remains could not be turned into a huge amount of fossil energy today. Microbes can also be used to explore and extract oil.

However, certain microbes commonly found in the environment can also cause serious problems in the oil industry environment. For example, the proliferation of sulfate-reducing prokaryotes can cause corrosion in pipes, vessels, and machinery. Monitoring the presence of key microbial groups that affect the corrosion of the oil field environment, and remedial measures can be taken if the number begins to increase. At Creative Biogene, we use the latest molecular methods to identify and quantify microbes known to influence corrosion. We also offer an analysis of the entire microbial community in the oil field.
