Hello Paul

There are several companies who supply strains and mixtures of strains
specifically selected and developed for degradation of hydrocarbons.
Most of these have been developed for in-situ application. One of the
best ranges I have found is from INTERBIO. They have a web page which
you can find through most search engines. These bacteria respond
quickly to the appropriate substrate and can be isolated for analysis.
