Read this article about a new ASTM International Test Method which aims to address corrosion in petrochemical pipelines by helping to detect quantities of corrosion-inducing bacteria in water, here. Modern Water plc's SRB Test Kit meets the proposed new standard.
The test method produces real benefits to customers: the real-time detection of corrosion inducing bacteria allows faster and more accurate remediation, which in turn reduces corrosion costs in pipelines and equipment.

Modern Water plc's Alan McQuillin is quoted as saying: “Sulfate-reducing bacteria has been identified as a major contributor to microbiologically induced corrosion”. He says the annual estimated cost of such corrosion to the oil and gas industry ranges from $4 billion to $30 billion.
