A26 Bugs for Oil? Potential of MEOR in Selected Australian Reservoirs A.K. Becis* (University of Adelaide) H.K. Sarma (University of Adelaide) & B. Setiadi (Santos Ltd) SUMMARY Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR) is an Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) process with no applications in Australia. However there have been limited successful applications world-wide most notably in China USA Venezuela and Eastern Europe. The varied nature of MEOR applications suggest that possibilities should also exist in Australian reservoirs. MEOR involves the use of microbes their metabolic activities and by-products to improve the recovery of oil from the reservoir. It also encompasses microbial
