Sweet technique finds cause of sour oil and gasSweet technique finds cause of sour oil and gas
Rice environmental engineers develop method to ID cause of sour hydrocarbons in wells
In at least one — and probably many — oil and gas drilling operations, the use of biocides to prevent the souring of hydrocarbons wastes money and creates an unnecessary environmental burden, according to researchers at Rice University.  (April 4, 2016)
