DOE OUTLINES 18 OIL FIELD RESEARCH PROJECTS

The U.S. Department of Energy has chosen 18 oil field research projects to receive nearly $8.4 million in federal funding. The projects range from general studies of the geologic makeup of oil reservoirs to use of luminescent bacteria to trace the flow of fluids through an oil bearing formation. They include five projects that will concentrate on fundamental studies of microbial enhanced oil recovery, a technique that uses microorganisms to boost oil production.
