Oilfield Microbiology

This course aims to strengthen the participant’s ability to identify and manage microbial problems in oil production facilities. Through a series of lectures and exercises we cover the majority of microbiologically related issues from the oil & gas industry, including all from microbial corrosion over reservoir souring to system fouling.



All course activities vil be evaluated by the participants

The evaluation is based on: 2 participants

Who should attend?
The course is designed as an introduction for non-microbiologists, including managers, engineers or technical staff, dealing with microbial challenges in oilfield systems.

After the course you will have obtained

  • A general introduction to microbiology
  • Knowledge on oilfield and petroleum microbiology, including: microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), souring of oil and gas fields and system fouling
  • Information on good practices when sampling for microbiology in water, oil, solids, and on surfaces.
  • An overview on microbial assessment and mitigation strategies
  • Practical insight from discussion of selected field cases
  • Insight in the application of microbiology for oil and gas exploration, and the use of microorganisms for enhancing oil recovery.
