English term or phrase: Reservoir Souring/souring work
Context :
"apart from souring work, we are also carrying out studies in enhanced oil recovery"

I found "phénomène de sulfuro-genèse dans les réservoirs" for "souring" but I cannot see many instances of such formulation.

Any suggestions?

Merci d'avance
