This is the first national screening programme for potential microorganisms to be used in enhancing light/heavy crude oil (Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery - MEOR) in Oman. This technology is simple, inexpensive and environmentally friendly. We are also working on 'Mitigation of oil field souring by SRB'. A state of the art MEOR laboratory has been established at SQU, where well trained researchers and technicians can take this research further into field applications.
