Energy Overview

microbialspetriSentinel’s specialty petroleum reducing bacteria work to improve oil recovery by reducing paraffin, H2S and scale in the reservoir.

Research over the last 25 years has shown that petroleum reservoirs contain diverse microbial communities that influence the quality and quantity of petroleum that can be recovered. The vast majority of reservoirs are plagued by levels of paraffin wax that can prevent the oil well from producing at its maximum output. Additionally, undesirable by-products like scale, H2S and SRB causing corrosion continually degrade and cause problems in the oilfield.
