Rawwater to present at 2022 Microbiology Network Research in Progress meeting

Matt StreetsRawwater's Head of Scientific Division and Senior Research Scientist, Matt Streets, will be presenting at this year's Microbiology Network Research in Progress meeting. Hosted by the Mineralogical Society of the UK and Ireland, the event takes place at the University of Huddersfield on 30th June and 1st July.

Focused on industrial microbiology, Matt's presentation will provide a fascinating insight into oilfield reservoir souring (the contamination of hydrogen sulfide gas in production fluids) – a phenomenon that costs the Energy sector $billions annually.

Taking place on 1st July, and particularly useful to anyone whose work surrounds problematic microbiology, Matt’s presentation will include:

  • How it wasn't until the late 1980s that microbial activity through water injection was considered to be a cause of reservoir souring,
  • The early souring research at CAPCIS Ltd and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) in conjunction with North Sea Operators,
  • The significant advances that now exist in souring forecasting, simulation and mitigation,
  • The work of Rawwater and its creation of the world's largest database of pressurised bioreactor production chemistry.
