This chapter presents microbial-enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) mechanisms first. Microbes and nutrients used in MEOR are introduced. Screening criteria are listed. Finally, several microbial field applications are presented. These applications include single-well microbial huff-and-puff, microbial waterflooding, wellbore stimulation to remove wellbore or formation damage, and MEOR using indigenous microbes. © 2013
