(685c) An Economic Approach for Non-Recovered Oil Recovery: Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery
AIChE Annual Meeting
Monday, November 15, 2021 - 4:06pm to 4:24pm
There comes the need of tertiary method which is characterized as the enhanced oil recovery (EOR) for the recovery of the unrecovered. Among all the available EORs, Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) has been proven to be a technologically advanced resource to uncover the non-renewable resources.
MEOR utilizes the biomeric material especially the microbes to alter the properties of oil and the supports the oil movement and enhances the recovery. The studies provided the implication of the MEOR with low cost and high outputs. The present study provides the exploitation of the diverse microbial systems such as bio-surfactants, bio-polymer, solvents and enzymes for amending the properties and enhancing the recovery of the non-recovered crude oil.
