Participating companies will select specific oil field assets with a history of MIC or service conditions of particular interest for laboratory simulation in the APES. Using waters collected from these operating assets, the APES platform will then generate samples for biomarker discovery that will be further ‘reality-checked’ through select analyses of field samples. By combining available and newly generated data, commonalities will be uncovered to develop generic and widely applicable MIC biomarker assays. Data interpretation charts and KPIs will be generated to translate field biomarker concentrations to integrity threats.
