Mystery Oil Spill Eating Bacteria

Scientists United States (U.S.) claimed that successfully completed the mysterious loss of oil spill that leaked from the well of the worst incidents in the Gulf of Mexico recently, a newspaper report yesterday.
It is caused by a bacteria that eat the very fast track of about five million barrels of oil that leaked from the rig Deepwater Horizon giant firms owned by British Petroleum (BP) for 87 days in the bay.
Head of Ecology Department Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory near here, says Terry Hazen, the carbon-eating bacteria known as oceanospirillales, spread quickly about 10 kilometers from the BP platform exploded on 20 April.
"We have never seen this bacteria and it is fast eating up the samples brought back to the lab, all the oil spilled has been cleaned by the bacteria out smoothly," said Hazen.
