  • Description
  • Contents

This book brings together contributions from leading scientists, academics, and experts from the oil and gas industry to discuss microbial-related problems faced by the industry and how bioinformatics and an interdisciplinary scientific approach can address these challenges. Microbial Bioinformatics in the Oil and Gas Industry: Applications to Reservoirs and Processes presents the major industrial problems caused by microbes (e.g., souring, biocorrosion) as well as the beneficial activities (e.g., biofuels, bioremediation).


  • Offers a detailed description of how bioinformatics has advanced our understanding of numerous issues in the oil and gas industry
  • Covers cases from geographically diverse oil fields, laboratories, and research groups
  • Contains fundamentals and applied information of relevance to the oil and gas sector
  • Presents contributions from a team of international experts across industry and academia

With its cross-disciplinary approach, this comprehensive book provides microbial ecologists, molecular biologists, operators, engineers, chemists, and academics involved in the sector with an improved understanding of the significance of microbial bioinformatics applications in the oil and gas industry.
