Abstract: THE GROWTH and activity of sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB) can occur throughout the crude oil production chain, from seawater-injection pipelines and the reservoir, to oil-production facilities and pipelines, and crude oil storage tanks. Corrosion is localized and severe. Procedures for identifying the bacteria presence of the SRB are available and reliable, but the rate of corrosion and its location remain elusive.

This is the third of three papers of this series, the first of which was published in our 4th Quarter 2007 (December), issue on the subject of Trends and developments in microbiologically-induced corrosion in the oil and gas industry. The second paper, published in our 1st Quarter, 2008 (March) issue, looked at microbiologically-induced corrosion and biofilm interactions.
