In the oil and gas industry, sulfate-reducing bacteria can create hydrogen sulfide (H2S), thus decreasing the commercial value of crude oil, causing metal equipment corrosion and great damages to the economic efficiency and the health of staff working on drilling rigs. Because of their strong antibacterial and environmental friendly characteristics, silver nanoparticles have been studied and developed by scientists in the world. This paper presents some research results on silver nanoparticle synthesis and antibacterial survey of sulfate-reducing bacteria desulfomicrobium baculatum isolated from crude oil samples taken from Bach Ho field.
