In terms of application, the oil & gas segment led the water treatment biocides market in 2019. Oil & gas production occurs throughout the world. Each oilfield is unique and the construction and development of each new oilfield presents many challenges and opportunities for petroleum engineers. Differences in geology, topography, and climate in and around an oilfield will dictate how the oilfield is developed, maintained and eventually decommissioned. However, one thing that is a constant in an oilfield, regardless of its location, is the need for biocides. Biocides are used in all stages of oilfield development, from the initial drilling of the wells and the day to day production of oil and gas, and in all aspects of the maintenance of the field. They play an important role in the life of an oilfield and are a valuable tool in ensuring that oil and gas are produced safely and reliably. There are different biocides which are used in oil and gas industry. Acrolein is an extremely reactive molecule that is used to perform several different functions in the oil field. It is an effective biocides at low use concentrations and will also reduce hydrogen sulfide concentrations. It is also used in squeeze treatments to aid in the dissolution of iron sulfide. Bronopol is a halogenated diol that also contains an electrophilic carbon atom. It is used primarily in fluid preservation applications, most notable in the preservation of fracturing fluids or other fluids that are neutral to slightly basic in pH, Bronopol is particularly effective against Pseudomonas bacteria. DBNPA is a halogenated amide and is considered a fast kill biocides. This biocides is used primarily to treat the water used to prepare fracturing fluids.
Brazil has the highest number of COVID-19 cases, followed by Ecuador, Chile, Peru, and Argentina. The government of South America has taken an array of actions to protect their citizens and contain COVID-19’s spread. It is anticipated that South America would face lower export revenues, both from the drop in commodity prices and reduction in export volumes, especially to China, Europe, and the US, which are important trade partners. Containment measures in several countries of South America will reduce economic activity in the manufacturing sectors for at least the next quarter, with a rebound once the epidemic is contained.
