Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) have a prolific association in the field of microbial biotechnology since 1996. The persistent efforts put in by scientists in microbiology laboratories of both ONGC and TERI for finding ways for enhanced oil recovery resulted in promising collaborative research. A long success story of the collaboration between ONGC and TERI culminated in the formation of ONGC TERI Biotech Limited (OTBL). Thus, from laboratory scale to pilot to successful field application through OTBL—summarizes the progress of collaborative efforts of microbial-enhanced oil recovery between ONGC and TERI so far. Through similar steps, but in a much faster way, WDP (Wax Deposition Prevention) treatment for oil well tubing and surface pipelines has also been developed. ‘OILZAPPER’, a consortium of crude oil and oily sludge degrading bacteria – deriving from various bacterial cultures existing in the natural environment, has also been developed by TERI after seven years of extensive research for clean up of oil spills and treatment of oily sludge.
