Improved Oil Production
Para-Bac® products are used to control paraffin, corrosion, and scale in producing oil wells, as well as in microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR). Para-Bac is also used in above-ground production facilities to keep tanks, separators, and flow lines clean.
Oil Field Products (Paraffin Control)
Para-Bac This is the original Micro-Bac International’s oil-field product. While developed for paraffin control, it has been observed to stimulate production and inhibit scale corrosion.
Para-Bac X (Para-Bac X,XX, XXX) - were developed to work on specific ranges of the carbon chains. For instance, Para-Bac X is used in oils where the paraffin falls within C16 to C60.
Para-Bac/S This product works on a wider range of paraffin. For most applications, it can replace Para-Bac.
Para-Bac+ The “+” products combine the scale-controlling activities of Litho-Bac with the paraffin-controlling activity of the respective Para-Bac products.
Ben-Bac This product has been developed to target the deposition of select asphaltenes and paraffin and to improve the flow properties of specific low gravity crudes.
Corroso-Bac Corroso-Bac is used for the inhibition of corrosion and scale. Corroso-Bac protects down-hole and surface equipment from corrosion by sequestration, filming, and removing solids that cause under-deposit corrosion. It can be used to control calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, and barium sulfate scale.
Litho-Bac This product was developed for water flood injection treatments. It is designed to control calcium carbonate, calcium sulfate, and barium sulfate scales. It also has nominal paraffin control activity.
Oilfield Special Products
Gum-Bac – repairs unsuccessful guar-based fracture jobs
Frac-Bac – repairs unsuccessful polymer-based fracture jobs
Standard Oilfield Applications
Stimulation- average production increase since 1986 is 50% with typical increases near 70%
Initialization- good success in breaking through HOT zone to clear pathways for lighter oils to flow
Maintenance (pump)- replaces chemicals, hot oiling, scraping and other techniques through monthly treatments
Maintenance (waterflood)- enhances waterflood performance with monthly treatments of injection water to reduce scale and corrosion
Tank Cleaning- separates oil/water for maximum oil recovery and eliminates personnel entry
Fracture Repair- degrades job frac obstructions that did not break
Micro-Bac International is no stranger to working outside of the United States. One of our largest projects was in the rain forests of Ecuador. When an Oil spill covered along the Amazon river, we answered the call. Not only working to return the oil for production, but also cleaning the land and ground. When it comes down to what matters Micro-Bac always has people first. Our work down in Ecuador is a perfect example of how we are working to make the world a better place.
