The spillage of oil and other petroleum products have been a major source of environmental pollution globally. Rampant use of chemical remediation methods were shown to be noxious with detrimental consequences. Exploration of microbiodata for probable candidate to be utilized for degradation of oil spillage or contamination is of great interest. In this study, soil samples from 10 different mechanic workshops in mechanic village Dutse were collected as well as control sample from unpolluted hydrocarbon free soil at same site, bacterial species were isolated, identified using biochemical and molecular 16S rRNA gene sequencing and post sequencing analyses. Species enumerated were Bacillus cereaus, Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus licheniformis and Paenibacillus alvei, The sequences were compared to closest relative species in the GenBank data base of National Centre for Biotechnology Information. However, the substrate used was engine oil and all the isolates were found to utilized the test substrate. Biodegradation studies have been carried out through Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS). Of all the isolates, Bacillus subtilis might be the most hydrocarbon degrading bacterial species due to high average relative abundance concentration of degraded hydrocarbon compound.
