  • SummaryThe degradation of crude oil in continuous culture of a mixed bacteria population has been studied. The degradation percentage reaches 83 % with a 0.05 h-1 dilution rate and a 6 g 1-1 crude oil concentration. The different crude oil compounds : saturated, aromatic, polar hydrocarbons and asphaltenes are degraded at 97 %, 81 %, 52 % and 74 % respectively.
