Modelling Microbially Enhanced Oil Recovery

By • January 28th, 2015

Dr Jungho Park of the CSIRO’s Urban and Industrial Water program is investigating the mechanisms and processes of microbially-enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) using multi-phase reactive transport modelling. MEOR is the use of microbes in petroleum reservoirs to enhance the amount of oil that can be produced. These are typically hydrocarbon-utilising, non-pathogenic microorganisms either found naturallymore…
