The goal of this study was to identify the bacterial species found in petroleum-contaminated soils from several workshops, as well as to evaluate the pace at which the isolates used petroleum products. Five distinct mechanic shops in Tiruchirappalli Corporation, Tamil Nadu, India, provided soil samples. Soil samples were plated on nutrition agar, desoxycholate citrate agar, brilliant green agar, blood agar, and other agars to isolate bacterial species from petroleum-contaminated soils. Bacterial isolates from petroleum-contaminated soil were studied. Salmonella sp., E. coli sp., Klebsiella sp., Streptococcus sp., Pseudomonas sp., Micrococcus sp., Bacillus sp., Salmonella sp., E. coli sp., Klebsiella sp., Streptococcus sp., Streptococcus sp Bacillus sp., Pseudomonas sp., Streptococcus sp., and Micrococcus sp. used all of the test substrates, including petrol, diesel, and kerosene. Bacillus sp., Pseudomonas sp., Streptococcus sp., and Micrococcus sp. have all been found to utilise petroleum products in the soil.
