Enhanced Bio-Stimulation through Horizontal Wells
Biosparging technology can be further enhanced when applied through Horizontal Remediation Wells. Since horizontal well systems typically have 4 to 10 times more screen footage in contact with the contaminated media than vertical systems, Horizontal Biosparge Wells can inject much greater volumes while maintaining the same low flow rates. This, in turn, leads to more rapid increases in dissolved oxygen and aerobic biodegradation. In addition, these larger injection volumes have proven HBS well systems to be a viable treatment technology for large free product plumes.
Due to their success, many large Oil & Gas companies are looking at this Horizontal Biosparge Well technology to address impacts on their large and busy sites. This article tells why.
