Petroleum Microbiology mainly involves the study of Microorganisms that can metabolize crude or refined petroleum products. Microorganisms can also degrade hydrocarbons with the involvement of methanogenic archaea, bacteria, and few fungi. Bioremediation is the main process which deals with the treatment process of contaminated media including water and industrial wastes. This field purely explains about the mechanism involved for the degradation of hydrocarbon with the help of microbial sensors to upgrade the purity of the petroleum waste. There is a new trend in petroleum Microbiology which makes use of genetically modified Bacteria for the further treatment process of the petroleum refined products.
