  • Testing of Oil Recovery Skimmers in Ice at Ohmsett - The National Oil Spill Response Research & Renewable Energy Test Facility

    Abstract The mechanical recovery of oil in ice-infested water presents unique and difficult clean-up challenges. Ice can impede the movement of spilled oil making it less available for removal by the active components of oil recovery skimmers. Ice and slush that is recovered with oil can jam the skimmer, pump inlets and hoses and can provide an environment for enhanced emulsion formation. ...

  • Oil in frac water testing

    The amount of water used in and produced by hydraulic fracturing of shale gas wells is in the millions of gallons per well. Whether the water is going to be taken off site for disposal or reused for re-injection, the flowback or produced water needs pretreatment to remove any residual oil from the wa-ter. Waiting for remote laboratory results can take several days to a week. The InfraCal TOG/TPH ...

  • Analytical Testing for Corexit Dispersants Used in the Gulf Spill

    The analysis of various sample matrices (seawater, sediment, tissue) to determine concentrations of Corexit dispersants used in the Gulf spill requires the use of one or more of the components in the dispersant as a tracer. The primary active ingredient (i.e. the primary surfactant) in the Corexit products is Dioctyl Sulfosuccinate Sodium Salt (DOSS). The other primary ingredients function as ...


  • Adapter bacteria control oil spill in bulk

    Introduction Microbac was called in to advise on a required treatment for an integrated bulk oil handling facility and sea-land terminal, receiving, storing and shipping a wide variety of liquid fuels, inorganic chemicals and petrochemicals, many of which are toxic to microorganisms. The variable and complex waste streams from tank truck cleaning, ballast and tank cleaning discharges from ...

  • Inland oil spill clean up case study

    Introduction The essential strategy for inland spill clean up techniques should be containment, recovery and temporary storage. Secondary needs will include transportation and possible disposal - or recycling. It is important to discover the source of the spill which might not be straight forward. A steady slow seepage from a leaking disused oil storage tank may be very difficult ...

  • Oil Spill Eater, Solution Oil Spillage in Niger Delta

    Oil Spill Eater II is the name of a non-toxic product which provides the means for moving oil spill response out of its 19th Century methodology into the realm of advanced technological 21st Century breakthroughs for addressing and remediating 100% of any spill in any environment.  In comparison, current response methods employed by three major oil companies - BP, Exxon and Shell - are ...

  • Case study - Public-private partnership successfully tests leakwise early oil spill detection sensor in the tidal Delaware river

    Background In the summer of 2011, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) collaborated with GE Analytical Instruments on a unique test deployment of an oil sheen sensor in the tidal Delaware River. The idea for the test deployment arose during meetings of the Delaware River and Bay Oil Spill Advisory Committee, which includes organizations and ...

  • If Only a Spill Site Could be as Pristine After a 2.7 Million Litre Oil Spill, as it had been Before.

    Well actually, it can and it has. In May of 1994 a Brazilian land oil pipeline ruptured and dumped 2.7 millionlitres of oil into the environment. Within hours the oil had found its way into the Atlantic Ocean and sooncontaminated an exotic local beach, threatening the natural ecosystem and destroying the local bathing and recreational facilities. The area was declared an environmental disaster of ...

  • Prevention of Oil Spill Pollution in Seawater Using Locally Available Materials

    Abstract Oil spill pollution a severe environmental problem, which persists in marine environment or in inland water across the world, has grown to an alarming magnitude with increased levels of oil production and transport. Causes of it is either accidental or due to operation wherever oil is produced, transported, stored and used on sea or land. Hence, it is almost impossible for marine life ...


  • Biosurfactant produced by a Rhodococcus erythropolis mutant as an oil spill response agent

    Biosurfactants have been considered as superior alternatives to currently used surfactants as they are generally more biodegradable, less toxic, and better at enhancing biodegradation. However, the application of biosurfactants is limited by the availability of economic biosurfactants and the corresponding producers that can work effectively. Hyperproducers generated by metabolic engineering ...

  • The Three Basic Parameters for How to Address Oil / Hydrocarbon Based Material Spills

    The most basic quesAon to ask in regards to oil spills is, why do you clean them up? Very few people get the reason why you clean up an oil spill. The reason you clean up an oil spill is to reduce the toxicity of the oil to the environment so that living organisms can survive/ live. If single celled organisms can live in the environment, then generally ...
