Sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) can have very detrimental effects for gas and oil extraction technology. SRB is a group of specialized microorganisms that occur in aqueous environments in the absence of oxygen. The formed H2S in this process is the principal agent in the disastrous effects caused by SRB. It contaminates gas and stored oil, plugs injection wells, and promotes corrosion of iron and steel in the absence of oxygen (anaerobic corrosion).
Another principal mechanism by which SRB are involved in corrosion is their ability to depolarize iron surfaces by consumption of cathodically formed hydrogen. It also multiplies with high speed by multiplying by double every 20 minutes. To eliminate the SRB problems ULTRAAQUA UV can supply efficient standalone UV systems or fully integrated containerized packages, with all necessary equipment to include UV reactor, combined control cabinet, manifolds, valves, and pre-filter if applicable.
For various marine applications, ULTRAAQUA UV have supplied systems in high-grade steel such as Duplex, Super duplex, SMO254, and titanium as well as PP or PEHD plastics, known for their advanced corrosion resilience. ULTRAAQUA UV systems are of the highest possible quality due to a design made for operation in harsh environments and stringent manufacturing standards.Get in touch

UV technology has been declared the most optimal solution to destroy SRB bacteria that presents so many challenges to the oil and gas extraction industry. It also enables the water to be continuously re-injected for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) applications.
ULTRAAQUA UV systems are the chemical-free solution that completely eliminates the need for handling and storage of dangerous chemicals, which can be extremely challenging especially in the off-shore industry.
Since ULTRAAQUA UV systems is the chemical-free solution, this enables the clients to further optimize their production and re-inject the water for continuous extraction. Due to its physical disinfection process, ULTRAAQUA UV systems are the only solution allowing for continuous re-injection of water in oil and gas industries.
To the vast size of the oil and gas extraction industry, one solution fit all simply does not work. ULTRAAQUA engineers will be pleased to assist in finding the right solution for your specific application – whether that be one of our standard systems or a custom-made solution.
