Discover the industry benchmark for forecasting oilfield reservoir souring

20–21 November 2019            Energy Institute, London

Meet Rawwater at the Reservoir Microbiology Forum

We are delighted to announce that Rawwater will be attending the Reservoir Microbiology Forum at the Energy Institute, London, on 20th and 21st November 2019.

As specialists in oilfield reservoir simulation and souring forecasting, we give operators the confidence to make informed decisions in relation to materials used, production strategies and chemical treatments.

Bottle testingWe have been sub-culturing oilfield bacteria strains for more than 30 years and, since 2006, have operated what is widely considered to be the world’s most advanced pressurised bioreactor facility to study and evaluate microbiological souring in simulated reservoir conditions. As a result, we have accrued more than 450 bioreactor years’ worth of oilfield souring data, with information relevant to oilfields around the globe.

Testing conditions within our pressurised bioreactor suites range from atmospheric pressure to 12,000 psig, with temperatures ranging from 5°C to just below the boiling point of water. This capability enables us to determine the efficacy of various biocides and water treatment regimens on different microbial populations.

Used independently of - or in association with - our pressurised bioreactor suites, DynamicTVS© (Thermal Viability Shell) is our predictive software modelling program for the forecasting of oilfield reservoir souring. Using operational, planning and survey data from all stages of oil production, under any pressure and temperature conditions, to generate future profiles of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), the software can forecast a reservoir’s propensity to sour in advance of well completion.

DynamicTVS© and our pressurised bioreactor suites are complementary
technologies. Forecasts from the modelling program are used to confirm the findings of our bioreactor studies and bioreactor data is fed back into DynamicTVS©. Together they provide the industry benchmark for H2S forecasting in oilfield reservoirs.
