About BioSqueeze®

For more than 8 years, BioSqueeze Inc.’s revolutionary biomineralization technology has been in the works. Its success stems from a unique, collaborative partnership between government, university, and industry experts. In 2014, the Montana State University Center for Biofilm Engineering (CBE) was given $8 million from the Department of Energy to research how microbes could be used to seal problematic defects in wellbore casing cement. The research team, including BioSqueeze Inc. founders Robert Hyatt and Randy Hiebert, found that naturally occurring soil bacteria could form crystalline calcium carbonate that would readily attach to rock, cement, and steel to form a permanent bond.

Innovative Technology

Through this research, the technology behind BioSqueeze® was born. Our founders brought the technology from the lab to the field, developing highly precise and sensitive equipment to make BioSqueeze® even more successful. In 2019, BioSqueeze Inc. sealed its first oil and gas well, successfully eliminating sustained casing pressure and pioneering the latest innovation in the oil and gas industry.

Proven Solution

Today, BioSqueeze® is quickly becoming known as the most effective solution for addressing sustained casing pressure, having successfully sealed leaks in nine U.S. states and two Canadian provinces. Leaks that were once impossible to seal now have a powerful solution, saving oil and gas operators millions of dollars and months of rig time that would otherwise be thrown at futile attempts to seal. BioSqueeze® has many potential applications for the oil and gas industry, and we’ll continue to bring new solutions to the table as leaders in biomineralization.
