Title: Microorganisms Associated with Hydrocarbon Contaminated Sites and Reservoirs for Microbially Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR)

Russian partner Institutes tested a number of strains from their collection and/or selected at oilfield contamination/ extraction sites to determine their ability to create aggregates that could plug oil well reservoirs to enhance oil recovey. Among these tested, five facultative anaerobic organisms that performed the best in the Russian Institutes' trials were shipped to Argonne and evaluated at Argonne for their ability to produce aggregates that plug pores in oil reservoirs formations. Results were provided to the Industrial Partner who is interested in receiving the strains for further testing.
