Microbial-enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) has been considered as a promising technique to further increase oil recovery from petroleum reservoirs. Although the potential benefits of MEOR applications are considerable, engineering of oil recovery via the manipulation of microbial metabolism still remains an unproven concept rather than a highly desirable reality. One of the main reasons is that there are few tools appropriate to quantify the multiple metabolic and physical processes involved in the… CONTINUE READING
