Publisher Summary. Methane (CH 4) is a colorless, odorless gas, and the simplest of all hydrocarbon 4 is ubiquitously present and is of considerable environmental concern because it is a greenhouse gas and is increasing in concentration at a rate of about 1% per year.

Even though CH 4 is non-toxic, its presence in soil gas creates environmental concern because it can act as an. Environmental pollution by petroleum hydrocarbons is one of the major global concerns, particularly in oil-yielding countries. In fact, there are more than five million potentially contaminated areas worldwide that represent, in general, a lost economic opportunity and a threat to the health and well-being of humans and the environment.

Oil spills in the sea. by Stanislav Patin, translation by Elena Cascio based on "Environmental Impact of the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry". Below you will find a short discussion of oil fate and behavior during an oil spill in the sea.

distill the accumulated information, doing so in ways that are relevant to the regulatory framework. TRANSPORT. Environmental hazards related to the release of diluted bitumen, and its eventual conversion to weathered diluted bitumen, are summarized and compared with other commonly transported crude oils in Figure In Figure the first column lists properties affecting transport, for.

The environmental fate of stranded crude oil The weathering of crude oil may be studied in the laboratory or in the field. Laboratory experiments have the advantage of a known starting material and a continuous sample weight history. In field studies, these parameters are not usually as Cited by: If the crude oil name is provided and the crude oil is a standard type, readily available databases, such asthe Environment Canada oil properties database, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Automated Data Inquiry for Oil Spills (ADIOS) oil library, can be consulted to obtain some of these data.

To study the effects of crude oil on wetland soils, we examined the total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH), total organic carbon (TOC), total nitrogen (TN), and total phosphorus (TP), as well as pH and electricity conductivity (EC) from oil sites and Cited by: To date, the residual crude oil has not impacted groundwater quality.

Future groundwater recharge plans may raise the water table to 15 m BGS in the area affected by the crude oil. Fate and transport modeling using site-specific data shows that the existing hydrocarbons in the subsurface do not pose a significant risk to groundwater quality.

its own mix of constituents. One reason for this is that crude oil, itself, varies in its composition. Some of this variation is reflected in the finished petroleum product. The acronym PHC (petroleum hydrocarbons) is widely used to refer to the hydrogen- and carbon-containing compounds originating from crude oil, but.

The search for oil in Nigeria begun in (Awobajo,Ifeadi and Nwankwo, ), with increasing production of crude oil and discovery of major oil reserves, more effort was added to exploit this resource.

Frequent small chronic spillages of refined oils may be a greater environmental problem than rare accidental spillages of crude oil on tundra soils.

Crude oil is a complex mixture of thousands of hydrocarbon and nonhydrocarbon compounds. Hydrocarbons comprise more than 75% of most crude and refined oils; heavy crude oils can contain more than 50% nonhydrocarbons Hydrocarbons in petroleum are divided into four.

Silt ( mm in diameter): The presence or absence of crude oil in the soil did not affect silt content of the soil atand cm soil depth (Table 1).

A similar result was obtained by [3] who observed in a crude oil polluted area that granulometric fraction of the soil was not influenced by the presence of crude oil. With Soil Not Oil, Vandana Shiva connects the dots between industrial agriculture and climate shows that a world beyond dependence on fossil fuels and globalization is both possible and necessary.

: General Hazard/Toxicity Summary: New motor oil contains fresh and lighter hydrocarbons that would be more of a concern for short-term (acute) toxicity to aquatic organisms, whereas used.The major problem associated with crude oil explora-tion is the pollution/contamination of the environment.

Crude oil contamination is a global phenomenon affecting all aspects of the environment. Cases of crude oil contami-nation of the soil have been documented (Imevbore ; Awobajo ). Contamination of soils by crude oil has remained anCited by: 7.
