  • Interpretation of total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) results with RaPID assay kits

    SUMMARY The SDI RaPID Assays for petroleum hydrocarbon fuels (Total BTEX, PAHs) have been shown to provide excellent correlation with GC based (8015M) and IR based (418.1) methodologies for testing Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH). Linear relationships between immunoassay and TPH results with both gasoline and diesel fuels are demonstrated. Fuel reactivities with immunoassay are shown to ...


  • Bioaccumulation of petroleum hydrocarbons in arctic amphipods in the oil development area of the Alaskan Beaufort Sea

    An objective of a multiyear monitoring program, sponsored by the US Department of the Interior, Bureau of Ocean Energy Management was to examine temporal and spatial changes in chemical and biological characteristics of the Arctic marine environment resulting from offshore oil exploration and development activities in the development area of the Alaskan Beaufort Sea. To determine if petroleum ...

  • Air Monitoring for the Gulf Oil Spill

    Ambient air monitoring is a priority in the ongoing efforts to contain and manage the oil spill from the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. The following provides information about the kinds of airborne contaminants that are currently being monitored in the Gulf, how they are collected and how they are analyzed. For a given project, a suitable sampling plan – developed by ...


  • Surfactant-assisted oil-in-water monitoring

    A variety of common surfactants have been used to reduce fouling and enhance the performance of fluorescence-based oil-in-water monitors. Among the most effective are the alcohol ethoxylates with HLB values close to 12. Examples are SurfonicTM L24-9 (Hunstman, USA, HLB 13) and TergitolTM 15-S-7 (HLB 12.1). These surfactants readily convert heterogeneous oil/water mixtures into homogeneous, ...

  • Chronic toxicity of heavy fuel oils to fish embryos using multiple exposure scenarios

    The chronic toxicity to rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) embryos of heavy fuel oil (HFO) 6303, weathered HFO 6303, HFO 7102, and Medium South American (MESA) crude oil was assessed by different exposure regimes. These included water accommodated fractions (WAF: water in contact with floating oil), chemically‐enhanced WAF (CEWAF: oil dispersed with Corexit 9500), and effluent from columns of ...

  • 1700 miles of the keystone Xl Pipeline: A state, federal and international regulatory concern

    Regulatory compliance at the state and federal level grows infinitely more complex when the laws and regulations of six U.S. states, U.S. federal regulations, and the Canadian regulatory regime are intertwined.  TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL Pipeline, currently awaiting approval from the U.S.  Department of State, is gaining as much attention for its regulatory ...

  • New air quality rules challenge oil & natural gas industry

    EPA Administrator signed a suite of proposed new air regulations affecting both the Production/Processing and Transmission/Storage sectors of the oil and natural gas industry. The proposed rules mandate the use of emission controls as well as work practices through two different air regulatory programs – New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and National Emissions Standards for Hazardous ...

  • Offshore oil spill clean up case study

    In the event of a major incident occurring offshore, for example a tanker casualty running aground or breaking up for any reason, it is of paramount importance to deploy emergency response to protect and save human life. Once this has been done an assessment of the casualty should be made on whether it is possible to salvage the vessel and its contents and to assess the type and amount of oil ...

  • Why high temperature combustion of landfill gas?

    Due to the accumulation of knowledge and the tightening of environmental law, the landfill technology has increasingly become concerned with the management of trace compounds in landfill gas. With landfill gas, contamination is through sulphur, chlorine, fluorine, halogenated hydrocarbons and heavy metals. Other trace elements such as volatile organic compounds (VOC), impose environmental ...
