The effect of nitrate addition on microbial H2S production in a seawater-flooded oil reservoir model column with crude oil as carbon and energy source was investigated. Injection of 0.5 mM nitrate for 2.5–3.5 months led to complete elimination of H2S (initially 0.45–0.67 mM). The major decline in H2S level coincided with the first complete nitrate consumption and production of nitrite. When nitrate was excluded, H2S production resumed after approximately 2.5 months and reached previous levels… CONTINUE READING
