Title: Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR)
Author: Eldeen, Ahmed Eltayeb Gammer; Alhadi, Al Mustafa Ali Adam; Mergani, Mohamed Abdelrahman
Abstract: With the rapid decline in the discovered oil reserves and the increasing consumption; emerged the need for enhanced oil recovery techniques. Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery(MEOR), has been proposed for many years as a cheap and effective alternative to enhance oil recovery as its different processes generally do not depend on oil prices. This project divided to research and experimental sections, discuss the MEOR technology. The research part explains the mainframes of MEOR: microbial system, the bioproducts , the mechanisms and the processes. A general screening criterion, advantages and disadvantages , summary of world MEOR trials and the common production responses is summarized. Data from two Sudanese reservoirs was compared with the general MEOR screening criteria. the experimental part inspected the applicability of MEOR in sudan. Where experiments on Sudanese crudes was carried. Two strains of hydrocarbon degrading bacteria was put in a media where the crude is the only carbon source. Encouraging results was obtained, implying potentials for more researches.
