Alcanivorax
Alcanivorax borkumensis is an alkane-degrading marine bacterium which naturally propagates and becomes predominant in crude-oil-containing seawater when nitrogen and phosphorus nutrients are supplemented. They are currently thought to be the world's most important oil-degrading organisms.

Oil-eating bacteria have started to clean the Deepwater Horizon spill : Not Exactly Rocket Science
« Deconstructing Gawande – why narrative and structure are important Why gonorrhoea is like a general sabotaging his own siege » Oil-eating bacteria have started to clean the Deepwater Horizon spill By Ed Yong | August 24, 2010 1:00 pm In the Gulf of Mexico, nature’s janitors are hard at work, mopping up the aftermath of a man-made disaster. On 20 April, 2010, an explosion at the Deepwater Horizon rig unleashed the largest oil spill in US history.
