Crude oil pollution on the ground known can reach the location source of ground water so it is potentially contaminate ground water used as the main source of fresh water needs .A hydrocarbon compound contained in crude oil also is a compound that most difficult to degrade. One way to solve this problem is using bioremediation, it recover the pollution using biological activity of microorganisms to reduce the levels of pollution toxicity. Research is done in the scale of the laboratory for 30 days. Performed variations is the addition of oxygen (aeration) and without the addition of oxygen (non-aeration) in bioremediation reactor . Parameter analysis of this research are total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) , the temperature, pH, a colony of microbes contained in total sample polluted soil. The research shown that the addition of aeration with discharge 0.03 l / minutes at process bioremediation process does not influence significantly to the results of a decline in value TPH in soil. This has proven of statistical testing two-way ANOVA significance who value more than 0.05 (P > 0.05).
