JGL Microbes produce biosurfactants that effectively break interfacial tension, they also:
The small size (less than .5 μm) of JGL Microbes allows them to penetrate the rag layer and gain access to the various components of the pad. Additionally, JGL Microbes:
JGL Microbes are facultative anaerobes; meaning they utilize available oxygen first, removing it from the system. Once removed, they take an anaerobic metabolic pathway (without oxygen). Additionally, the Microbes:
JGL Microbes strip hydrocarbons from the solids, allowing them to fall to the bottom of the tank, they also:
The microbes ingest long-chain hydrocarbons (C14 to C105+) and crack them into short-chain hydrocarbons (C12 range):
The viscosity of asphaltenes are reduced significantly, allowing them to separate from paraffin bonds and flow out of the wellbore; improving flow assurance
The microbes chelate scale ions, preventing them from forming. Including:
CaCO₃, CaSO, BaSO₄, SrSO₄, FeCO₃, Fe₂O₃, FeO, FeS
They produce by-products that are able to dissolve various scales and iron compounds, including:
CaCO₃, CaSO, FeS, FeCO₃, Fe₂O₃, FeO
The microbes produce biosurfactants that effectively break interfacial tension. They also:
Microbes remove the hydrocarbons our of the system.
Texas RRC requires TPH to be less than 10,000 ppm. We reduce levels below 1,000 ppm.
Reduce benzene to levels below 20 parts per billion
Out treatments average under 45 days to achieve required remediation levels.
JGL microbes are 100% naturally occurring and safe for the environment. They do not harm aquifers, lakes, rivers, streams, etc.
An in-depth report omicroorganisms. Below you will find our White Paper over Remediation/Prevention of Scale, Corrosion, and Hydrocarbon Carryover in SWDs and EOR Injectors with Specialized Bacteria vs. Traditional Chemicals.
microbes vs chemcials
JGL microbes are proven more effective and cost efficient than toxic chemical programs currently being used in the petroleum and wastewater industries.
No need to mix 4 or 5 separate products. JGL uniquely blends microbes tailored to your system's needs.
Our products are 100% safe for land, water, air, and life.
JGL microbes flow evenly at with full strength anywhere liquid flows. No need to maintain a specific PPM.
JGL employees inject our microbial solution directly into your system.
MEOR is a tertiary form of oil recovery - qualifying for large tax exemptions varying from state to state.
Our key principle in life and in business is excellence. It is a commitment we make every day to ensure that we will lead you to a clean process, long term success, and a better solution for your field.
Detailed monthly lab reports testing water and solid analysis.
Detailed sample analysis for potential projects.
Coordinated communication with engineering and field personnel throughout each microbe project.
See how microbes permeate solid deposits to remove solid buildup and eliminate under-deposit corrosion. Resulting in possible pressure reduction and/or volume increase.
