Abstract Production fluids from four single‐zone completion wells in carbonate petroleum reservoirs were examined chemically and microbiologically to investigate the potential for microbially enhanced oil recovery in carbonate reservoirs. The water analysis indicated a lack of soluble nitrogen and phosphorus in these reservoir fluids. Three of the wells were highly saline, as expected, but one produced water containing <0.5% sodium chloride. Microorganisms with metabolisms useful for… CONTINUE READING
