The Most Effective Solution to Eliminate Sustained Casing Pressure

Methane leaks in oil and gas wells cost the industry millions of dollars in unsuccessful attempts to seal while taking up precious time and resources. Historically, technologies for eliminating sustained casing pressure have been inconsistent, expensive, and inefficient. BioSqueeze® sets a new standard as the most effective and environmentally friendly solution for stopping gas migration.

BioSqueeze® answers the call with a cost-effective solution that seals even the toughest leaks at a single flat rate

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR APPLICATIONS

Eliminate Sustained Casing Pressure, Once and For All

BioSqueeze Inc. has successfully sealed leaks in six states and several major oil basins across the U.S. – often eliminating leaks in multiple annuli in a single application. BioSqueeze® has been used in P&A, DUC and producing wells, as well as gas storage and sequestration wells. Avoid paying for another round of drill out and cement, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars and tying up crews for months on end. If we don’t stop the leak on our first attempt, we will work with your team until the problem is solved.

Why Choose Biosqueeze®?

Sealed Well

BioSqueeze® routinely seals multiple leaks in a single application – often after dozens of other attempts using cement and resins have failed and millions have already been spent. BioSqueeze® does the job right, the first time.

Why Choose Biosqueeze®?

Superior Penetration

Low viscosity (1.05 cP) fluids seal even the smallest leakage pathways (as small as 1 micron or 0.00008 inches wide), which no other technology can reach.

Why Choose Biosqueeze®?

Permanent, Gas-Tight Seal

BioSqueeze® forms crystalline calcium carbonate similar to limestone in leakage pathways, readily bonding to steel, cement, and the formation to create an impermeable seal that prevents leaks once and for all.

Why Choose Biosqueeze®?

No Drill Out Necessary

BioSqueeze® forms a seal in the leakage pathways themselves, not the wellbore, leaving nothing to drill out after the job is done.

Why Choose Biosqueeze®?

Green Technology

BioSqueeze® uses natural and safe biomineralization technology, which poses no risk for aquifer contamination and generates less than 1/3 the amount of CO2 as a traditional cement squeeze.

Why Choose Biosqueeze®?

Abundant Applications

BioSqueeze® seals leaks to eliminate annular casing pressure in a wide variety of wells, before or after other attempts to seal and across a wide range of temperatures, pressures and depths. BioSqueeze® can also be used in refracturing and enhanced oil recovery to utilize more of a well's potential.

What is BioSqueeze®?

BioSqueeze® uses a low-viscosity, environmentally friendly biomineralizing solution to seal even the smallest leakage pathways, which no other technology can reach. Once in place, it forms a gas-tight crystalline calcium carbonate seal – similar to limestone – that readily bonds to rock, cement, and steel, permanently sequestering escaping gases at their source. BioSqueeze® harnesses the process of biomineralization in a new, innovative way, using naturally-occurring soil bacteria to create new minerals that solve problems for the oil and gas industry.

What People Are Saying

Resins are expensive and a mess to deal with when they fail. BioSqueeze® is more effective, charges a flat rate, and there is nothing to remove in the event that it fails.

Bio Squeeze Logo Symbol High Res

Extraction Oil & Gas is well-known to be an innovative leader within our industry, so it was a natural choice to partner with BioSqueeze Inc. to implement their solution to our Plug & Abandon jobs and Producing wells. In each case where we squeezed into previously cemented spaces, BioSqueeze® reduced bradenhead pressure to zero and did so without the application of another technology to pass subsequent mechanical integrity tests. It reaches micro-annuli and pore spaces that micro-cements simply cannot. The technology environmentally friendly and effective.
