Title (EN) MICROBIAL PRODUCTS AND THEIR USE IN BIOREMEDIATION AND TO REMOVE PARAFFIN AND OTHER CONTAMINATING SUBSTANCES FROM OIL AND GAS PRODUCTION AND PROCESSING EQUIPMENT
(FR) PRODUITS MICROBIENS ET LEUR UTILISATION DANS LA BIOREMÉDIATION ET POUR SÉPARER LA PARAFFINE ET AUTRES SUBSTANCES CONTAMINANTES DE LA PRODUCTION DE PÉTROLE ET DE GAZ ET ÉQUIPEMENT DE TRAITEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) The subject invention provides microbe-based products, as well as their use in simultaneously enhancing oil recovery from an oil well while efficiently removing contaminating compositions such as biofilm, scale, paraffin, and/or asphaltenes from oil production equipment and oil-bearing formations. The subject invention can also be used to disperse paraffin and asphaltene precipitates, and to reduce the viscosity of heavy crude oil. The subject invention further provides materials and methods for bioremediation of hydrocarbon-contaminated sites.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des produits à base de microbes, ainsi que leur utilisation dans l'amélioration de la récupération de pétrole d'un puits de pétrole et l'élimination efficace simultanées des compositions contaminantes telles que biofilm, tartre, paraffine et/ou asphaltènes provenant de l'équipement de production de pétrole et des formations pétrolifères. La présente invention peut également être utilisée pour disperser des précipités de paraffine et d'asphaltènes, et pour réduire la viscosité du pétrole brut lourd. Des matériaux et des procédés de bioremédiation de sites contaminés par des hydrocarbures sont en outre décrits.
