Abstract:

Previous models used to predict the likelihood of MIC were based on numbers of specific types of organisms, often determined by liquid culture of planktonic bacteria not archaea. It was agreed that this procedure was not reliable. For oil field systems, more modern models are based on qPCR and cell-specific rates of SRP and methanogens.
