- Maximizes sulfate-reducing & acid-producing bacteria control with glutaraldehyde-based chemistry
- Minimizes risk of downhole corrosion, formation damage, and reservoir souring
- Desorbs slowly with produced fluids to extend biocidal action over time
Get assured bacterial control of your oil and gas wells, quickly and over time, with the BioSorb™ 1250 prolonged-aging bacteria control agent from Baker Hughes. A controlled-release microbacteriacide, BioSorb slowly releases from the proppant pack to provide immediate and long-term pack protection.
Maximize wellbore and tubing bacterial protection
BioSorb comprises a dry, solid particle containing an absorbed specialty biocide. The product is nominally within the mesh size of 20/40 proppant and is placed deep in the formation via a fracture, frac-pack, gravel-pack, or pre-packed screen system. When the well begins to produce, the biocide slowly desorbs into the water phase of the production stream, inhibiting bacteria growth in the near-wellbore area and tubing.
Because the product is dry and inert, it can be easily cleaned up and will not contribute to chemical runoff if spilled. This is environmentally preferable to conventional liquid additives or batch- and continuous-injection liquid chemical systems.
Our application experts work with you to determine the optimal amount of Sorb material added to the proppant, based on crush and conductivity tests and your desired life of the treatment.
Ensure environmentally responsible treatment in wide-ranging stimulation fluids
BioSorb prolonged biocide is a StimPlus™ product and is compatible for use with common stimulation fluids. StimPlus services include prestimulation system analysis, stimulation fluid compatibility, coordination with pressure pumping services, and post-frac monitoring services to minimize flow assurance issues and protect wellbore assets.
The BioSorb agent is also a member of the SmartCare™ family of environmentally responsible chemical solutions, which helps ensure that you can achieve both your technical performance and environmental priorities. Evaluated by the Baker Hughes Environmental Services Group’s chemical assessment review process, this product has been methodically vetted for health, safety, and environmental criteria, performance, consistency, compatibility, and value.
