Stage I – 2018/2019
The first Argentine platform for microbial monitoring in Oil&Gas. It is a collaborative work environment that brings together the companies of the sector to exchange experiences and knowledge regarding the issue of microbiological corrosion (MIC), for the purpose of optimizing mitigation strategies.
It is composed by 8 members, among production companies and service providers. It analyzed more than 100 liquid samples (water and oil phases) of different production facilities and installations, that made possible a detailed description of the microbial communities and the definition of the genres responsible for the MIC phenomenon.
This information led to the generation of a database, the main asset of the MIC Consortium, which allows its classification by place of origin and level of MIC criticity. Based on the diagnosis and the characterization of microbial communities, it was possible to review and optimize mitigation strategies, suiting them to the specific needs of each location.
