Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) or bacterial corrosion can be a major problem in process equipment exposed to different types of waters in the production, processing and handling of crude oil and gas. Hence, there is a constant need to monitor bacterial proliferation in such systems in order to take remedial action. The most commonly used methodology to determine bacterial contamination is the Serial Dilution Technique. However, this method though very reliable, is quite involved and time consuming. Several commercial Bacteria Field Test Kits are currently available which are simple to use and require much less time to obtain results. The present paper discusses the findings of an investigation that was conducted to assess the advantages and limitations of some of these field kits compared to the Serial Dilution Technique.
