  • Analytical Solutions for Free-Hydrocarbon Recovery using Skimmer and Dual-Pump Wells

    Accidental release of petroleum hydrocarbons to the subsurface may occur through spills around refineries, leaking pipelines, storage tanks or other sources. If the spill is large, the hydrocarbon liquids may eventually reach a water table and spread laterally in a pancake-like lens. Hydrocarbons that exist as a separate phase are termed light non-aqueous phase liquids (LNAPL). The portion of the ...
