Yes, there are naturally occurring
microorganisms that break down oil. But you
are right, there is a downside to it. Apparently
they produce heavy metals that can then build
up in the larger creatures that eat them.

I don't know if they ever tried to 'seed' the
microorganisms or not. But whatever already
existed in the gulf probably broke down some
of the oil. Here is a link if you are interested.
