The first step in combating bacteria is to measure their presence. Because microbiological hazards come in a variety of shapes and sizes, the most effective first-line tool is one that measures the total population. Furthermore, because microbial proliferation is easier (and by extension, cheaper) to correct or prevent in the early stages than later on, the ideal indicator is one that provides fast feedback, preferably in real-time.
This document introduces the fundamental issues relating to microbiological control in oilfield applications and how 2nd Generation ATP monitoring can help.
