Why Microbes Can Be the Best Solution for Waterfloods, Saltwater Disposals and More
Bill Lantz worked for decades in the oil fields working with microbes.
He saw just about every issue that can crop up, with companies often turning to chemicals to try and deal with waterflood, saltwater disposals, paraffin and more. Lantz founded JGL Solutions in 2006 after gaining experience utilizing a better solution – microbes.
“They have a lot of (issues) that mostly they use chemicals to solve, and, once you know what these are and know there are microbes that actually do the same things chemicals do, only better, and do more than chemicals do, it’s really kind of amazing,” he said. “Being able to apply them at critical spots in a production spots and knowing what you’re doing … is a lot of it.”
The microbes provide not only a more effective solution but also one that is better for the environment, something many big energy companies love to hear as sustainability becomes more of a real focus and less of simply a buzzword.
“Now, you’re getting companies more worried about what they might actually be doing to the environment, so products like ours are perfect for that,” Lantz said. “What they’re finding out with our microbes is they’re more effective. Not only is it great for the environment, it’s much more effective than what they’re using, anyway.”
That makes looking into microbes as a solution for the issues that can occur in oil fields a smart play, and with Lantz and his team having decades of experience in the industry, JGL Solutions should be the first call.
