Field Study to Address Paraffin Problems
The EORI is seeking the cooperation of operators to provide access and perform microbial treatments on wells with paraffin clogging issues for testing.

The Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) is sponsoring a study to evaluate the effectiveness of microbial treatments to alleviate paraffin problems in Wyoming oil wells.  The EORI is seeking the cooperation of operators to provide access and perform microbial treatments on wells with paraffin clogging issues for testing. Up to 15 wells will be selected for this study.

No Out-of-Pocket Cost to Participate

The EORI will provide the well treatments at no out-of-pocket cost to the operator/s of the selected wells contingent upon operator(s) cooperation and performance of specified protocol for well treatment and data collection (per contract).  Study results will be published after all field tests are complete.

Selection of Field Test Sites - Finalized by May 2020

Finalizing the selection of field test-sites submitted by operators is anticipated by 1 May 2020, and finishing field tests by the end of 2020.
