51318-11616-High Concentration Biocide Treatment of an Oil Pipeline

An oil transmission pipeline in the Eagle Ford area was being treated with 150ppm of active biocide based on a five percent water hold up but good control of the microbial population was not being maintained.

An oil transmission pipeline in the Eagle Ford area was being treated with 150ppm of active biocide based on a five percent water hold up but good control of the microbial population was not being maintained based on cATP data obtained from swabbing coupons within the system. Based on field data and recommendations, 3750ppm of active biocide was chosen to replace the incumbent biocide treatment and a sessile kill study was requested to validate the treatment plan before being implemented in the field. Subsequent sessile kill studies and biofilm regrowth studies indicated that an initial biocide treatment was not successful in killing or removing biofilm but that a second biocide treatment, performed two weeks after the initial treatment, was much more effective. Several mechanisms of biofilm resistance to biocide treatments are discussed to help understand the efficacy of this biocide treatment plan.
