This book is intended as a comprehensive reference for integrity engineers, production chemists, oilfield microbiologists, and scientists working in the field of petroleum microbiology
Lahme will expand his skills in microbial physiology and molecular biology acquired in Germany and will be introduced to petroleum microbiology
, bioengineering and electrochemical techniques.
Associate Professor of Petroleum Microbiology
and Microbial Biotechnology, Federal University, Ndufu-Alike, Ikwo (FUNAI) Ebonyi State, Dr Chuma Okoro, says the advanced technology can save up to 75 per cent of the cost used currently in managing corrosion and souring related problems in the Nigerian oil and gas industry and this translates to about N13.
The study on petroleum microbiology started in 1955 in China.
Petroleum microbiology and the history of its role in enhanced oil recovery, the 1982 International Conference on Microbial Enhancement of Oil Recovery.
The chapters cover microbial physiology and ecology, natural hydrocarbons in the environment, microbiology of methane and C1 compounds, biodegradation of methane and other C1 compounds, biodegradation of aliphatic and alicyclic hydrocarbons, biodegradation of monoaromatic and chloroaromatic hydrocarbons, biodegradation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, halogenated hydrocarbons and their biodegradations, biodegradation of ethers and ether fuels, biodegredation of hydrocarbons in the environment, application of molecular biology and protein engineering to the degradation of hydrocarbons, bioremediation treatments, microbiology of oil reservoirs, applications of petroleum microbiology
to chemical synthesis, and microbial desulfurization of petroleum products.
Sawyer, who holds a master's degree in petroleum microbiology
from Eastern New Mexico University, worked for the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency prior to going solo in 1991.
Since its foundation, the Institute of Microbiologyof the Russian Academy of Sciences has been the leading scientific institution in Russia in the field of general and petroleum microbiology
