Late last month, ASTM International announced a new test method, to be published as D8243, that can help detect corrosion-inducing bacteria in water, which allows for faster remediation and lower costs associated with the damage.

According to ASTM International, the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay is able to detect the sulfate-reducing bacteria.

“Sulfate-reducing bacteria has been identified as a major contributor to microbiologically induced corrosion,” said ASTM International member Alan McQuillin, senior vice president of operations and technology at Modern Water.

For the oil and gas industry, the cost of such corrosion can add up to the $4-30 billion range annually, according to McQuillin.

"The proposed method allows for significantly faster and easier detection of the bacteria versus conventional test methods,” McQuillin said.
