Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is a complex damage mechanism that results in significant operating costs for pigging and cleaning programs, biocide and other chemical treatment, repairs, releases to the environment, and ongoing monitoring of microbiological conditions. Over the past decade, the use of molecular microbiological methods (MMM) such as ATP measurement, qPCR, and next-generation sequencing has gradually increased in the oil and gas industry, yet practical guidance on interpreting and applying MMM results from corrosion monitoring and control is limited. At the same time, operators today are under increasingly intense pressure to reduce costs, including corrosion mitigation and monitoring expenses. This workshop will bring together experts from the fields of molecular microbiology and corrosion control in an interactive exchange with industry stakeholders who are seeking justifiable ways to optimize mitigation costs based on state-of-the-art methods for diagnosing MIC and the effectiveness of mitigation.
On Wednesday, April 19th, Microbial Insights will host an In-Person Remediation Workshop in Houston, TX from 1:30 pm until 5:00 pm. The detailed schedule is as follows:
- 1:30 pm Event check-in and registration
- 2:00 pm Welcome, Introduction to Microbial Insights and a Systematic Approach to MIC
- 3:00 pm Biocides and Sampling Plans for MIC
- 4:00 pm Molecular Microbiological Methods for MIC assessment
This three-hour training is FREE for you to attend! Light snacks and soft drinks are provided, and you will receive a certificate of attendance. Although the workshop is FREE to attend, registration is required.
