Abstract. Cyanobacterial mats developing in oil-contaminated sabkhas along the African coasts of the Gulf of Suez and in the pristine Solar Lake, Sinai, were collected for laboratory studies. Samples of both mats showed efficient degradation of crude oil in the light, followed by development of an intense bloom of Phormidium spp. and Oscillatoria spp. Isolated cyanobacterial strains, however, did not degrade crude oil in axenic cultures. Strains of sulfate-reducing bacteria and aerobic… 

Microalgal-Bacterial Consortium in Polyaromatic Hydrocarbon Degradation of Petroleum Based Effluent

TLDR
Effective synergism and excellent PAH degradation is achievable and highly recommendable with microalgal-bacterial consortium yet its success is highly dependent on the consortium assembling, therefore, proper selection of the microbes for biodegradation is paramount to the success and efficiency of the degradation process.

Biodegradation of crude oil by some cyanobacteria under heterotrophic conditions

TLDR
It was found that S. platensis can grow at different concentrations of crude oil and no growth was obtained with N. punctiforme incubated with crude oil concentrations, after this period the growth progressively increased, especially with 2% crude oil.

The impact of oil on the diversity of cyanobacteria in the sediments of a laboratory microcosm

TLDR
Traditional cumbersome technologies, such as isolation and culture-based methods for cyanobacteria investigation are circumvents and are significant to molecular ecology analysis on cyanob bacteria.

NOVEL OIL-DEGRADING ALGAL-BACTERIAL ASSOCIATIONS FOR THE TREATMENT OF OIL POLUTION IN THE BALTIC SEA

The stability of an ecosystem strongly depends on the biodiversity of its microorganisms population. The network of interactions between microorganisms provides a flexible response to various changes

Microbial communities in oil-contaminated seawater.

Bioremediation of Saline Soil by Cyanobacteria

TLDR
This chapter deals with cyanobacterial mechanisms in the soil nutrient cycle along with the phototrophic mechanisms that give them UV protection in various land-use patterns such as soil salinity stress and use of cyanobacteria in halophilic environments.

Biodegradation of Crude Oil by Anabaena variabilis Isolated from Al-Dora Refinery

Oil spill occurs frequently all around the world which adversely affect the environment. Thus a low cost and environmentally friendly bioremediation could be an alternative way to solve the oil

Bioremediation of petroleum products impacted freshwater using locally available algae

TLDR
This work attempts to investigate the possibility of using naturally occurring algae to reduce hydrocarbon counts in waters contaminated with petroleum products such as petrol, kerosene, diesel and sump oil.
