Oil spill cleanups: finding the right chemistry  - Science Nation
Sunlight plays a key role in the natural degradation of oil after a spill, oxygenating the oil so it dissolves in seawater and comes in contact with microbes that will break it down. But, under certain conditions, sunlight can have negative effects, too. With continued exposure, the energy in sunlight drives chemical reactions that transform liquid oil into a sludge that has a consistency similar to peanut butter: thick, pasty and sticky. Supported by funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), analytical chemist Matthew Tarr and his team at the University of New Orleans are using samples from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill to learn more about how crude oil breaks down in seawater when it's exposed to sunlight and dispersants. The researchers' goal is to help refine the computer models that responders use to make cleanup plans. The research also adds to everyone's overall understanding and helps mitigate environmental damage from future oil spills. The research in this episode was supported by NSF award #1111525, Photochemistry of Petroleum from the Deepwater Horizon: Products, Mechanisms and Toxicity.

Introducing the RECOVER Virtual Lab
The University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science-led science consortium RECOVER launched the RECOVER Virtual Lab, a free online learning program for budding scientists ages 8+ through college to conduct their own ‘fish treadmill’ experiments in the classroom or at home. The virtual fish experimentation laboratory, which is available online and in the iTunes store for tablets, currently has one lesson plan led by University of North Texas (UNT) Ph.D. student Derek Nelson to measure the effects oil spills have on the physiology of two economically important fish in the Gulf of Mexico—red drum and mahi-mahi. The web- and app-based lab includes a downloadable lesson plan and quizzes for teachers and students to conduct similar experiments as university scientists using real data. Recent studies by the RECOVER consortium members showed that fish embryos and larvae exposed to crude oil during early development results in malformation of hearts, which likely results in mortality or reduced cardiac performance in surviving individuals. The RECOVER team also recently published a study that showed that such surviving individuals display reduced swimming capabilities. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill, in which more than three million barrels of crude oil got released in 2010 into the northern Gulf of Mexico, was the worst oil disaster in U.S. history, contaminating the spawning habitats for many fishes. Researchers continue to investigate the impacts of the oil spill to advance scientific understanding of the impacts of the incident and the potential associated impact of this and similar incidents on the environment and public health.

25th Anniversary of Exxon Valdez oil spill March 24, 1989
Originally published on March 16, 2014 On March 24, 1989, the oil tanker Exxon Valdez struck Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound, Alaska, shortly after midnight. The accident caused the oil tanker to spill more than 11 million gallons of crude oil. which equals roughly 1,264,155 barrels, or 17 olympic-sized swimming pools. The Exxon Valdez departed from the Trans Alaska Pipeline terminal at 9:12 pm March 23, 1989. The ship ran aground on Bligh Reef at 12:04 a.m., threatening the delicate food chain that supports Prince William Sound's commercial fishing industry. Also in danger were ten million migratory shore birds and waterfowl, hundreds of sea otters, dozens of other species, such as harbor porpoises and sea lions, and several varieties of whales. Many factors complicated the cleanup efforts following the spill, including the size of the spill and its remote location, which was accessible only by helicopter and boat. The spill affected the area region from Bligh Reef 460 miles to the tiny village of Chignik on the Alaska Peninsula. A U.S. Coast Guard at USCG investigator, along with a representative from the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, visited the scene of the incident to assess the damage. By noon on Friday, March 25, the Alaska Regional Response Team was brought together by teleconference, and the National Response Team was activated soon thereafter. Alyeska, the association that represents seven oil companies who operate in Valdez, including Exxon, first assumed responsibility for the cleanup, in accordance with the area's contingency planning. Alyeska opened an emergency communications center in Valdez shortly after the spill was reported and set up a second operations center in Anchorage, Alaska. Three methods were tried in the effort to clean up the spill: burning, mechanical cleanup, and chemical dispersants. A trial burn was conducted during the early stages of the spill. A fire-resistant boom was placed on tow lines, and two ends of the boom were each attached to a ship. The two ships with the boom between them moved slowly throughout the main portion of the slick until the boom was full of oil. The two ships then towed the boom away from the slick and the oil was ignited. The fire did not endanger the main slick or the Exxon Valdez because of the distance separating them. Because of unfavorable weather, however, no additional burning was attempted in this cleanup effort. Mechanical cleanup was started using booms and skimmers. However, skimmers were not readily available during the first 24 hours following the spill. Thick oil and heavy kelp tended to clog the equipment. Repairs to damaged skimmers were time consuming. Transferring oil from temporary storage vessels into more permanent containers was also difficult because of the oil's weight and thickness. Continued bad weather slowed down the recovery efforts. A trial application of dispersants was performed. The use of dispersants proved to be controversial. Alyeska had less than 4,000 gallons of dispersant available in its terminal in Valdez, and no application equipment or aircraft. A private company applied dispersants on March 24, with a helicopter and dispersant bucket. Because there was not enough wave action to mix the dispersant with the oil in the water, the Coast Guard representatives at the site concluded that the dispersants were not working and so their use was discontinued. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was involved in providing weather forecasts for Prince William Sound, allowing the cleanup team to adapt their methods to changing weather conditions. Meanwhile, specialists from the Hubbs Marine Institute in San Diego, California, set up a facility to clean oil from otters, and the International Bird Research Center of Berkeley, California, established a center to clean and rehabilitate oiled waterfowl. High pressure cold water treatment and hot water treatment involved dozens of people holding fire hoses and spraying the beaches. Hot water treatment was popular until it was determined that the treatment could be causing more damage than the oil. Small organisms were being cooked by the hot water. The water, with floating oil, would trickle down to the shore. The oil would be trapped within several layers of boom and either be scooped up, sucked up or absorbed using special oil-absorbent materials. In the aftermath of the Exxon Valdez incident, Congress passed the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, which required the Coast Guard to strengthen its regulations on oil tank vessels and oil tank owners and operators. Today, tank hulls provide better protection against spills resulting from a similar accident, and communications between vessel captains and vessel traffic centers have improved to make for safer sailing. The name of the Exxon Valdez was later changed to the Sea River Mediterranean, but was prohibited by law from returning to Prince William Sound.

Oil Companies Plead Guilty to Burnaby Oil Spill
The Burnaby oil spill in 2007 was a reminder for many people in BC of the danger of oil exports. Unfortunately at the very same time this spill was taking place Kinder Morgan and their partners were in the midst of expanding oil exports through the Burrard Inlet from the terminal in Burnaby. Four years later the big oil companies plead guilty to causing this spill but it doesn't seem like they learned their lesson. Plans are under way for further expansions to the Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker traffic through the inlet.

BP Oil Spill In Gulf Of Mexico - Cleanup With Hay, Why Use Toxic Dispersants?
"...offshore oil extraction should be phased out because of the threat of catastrophic subsidence, in favor of the shale oil deposits of Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado.The smallest estimate of the amount of shale oil in the deposits is 400 billion barrels. With our present oil consumption at 22 million barrels per day, 400 billion barrels theoretically provides 25 million bpd for forty years, enough to provide a bridge fuel to a presumably more technically advanced future, and incidentally to crush OPEC. Given that this so completely dwarfs the several tens of billions of barrels potential of offshore extraction, offshore drilling might as well be phased out, the subsidence threat avoided, and investment capital put to other uses." "Drilling in deeper and deeper water on the continental shelves means drilling closer and closer to the inflection point where the relatively gradual slope of the shelves plunges much more steeply to the oceanic abyss. In other words, the undisturbed strata that buttress the coastlines are getting thinner and thinner. This can only lead to disaster. Should shelf subsidence cause the loose alluvial burden on the shelves to start to slide, what engineering marvel could prevent this moving silt from plunging into the abyss and generating a tsunami? Note that both sides of the Florida Strait, narrow and steep, are being actively considered for oil and gas extraction. I (a layman) agree that each case is different, but subsidence in general due to mineral/fluid extraction is already so commonplace that alarm bells should be ringing loudly and clearly. Instead we get this fatuous "Drill, baby, drill!" political sloganeering, and the subsidence issue seems totally ignored in the rush to oil riches. Again, this can only lead to disaster." http://clasticdetritus.com/2007/11/11/sea-floor-sunday-3-gulf-of-mexico-continental-slope/ FAIR USE NOTICE: These pages may contain copyrighted (©) material the use of which has not always been specifically authorized by the copyright owner.

Oil Spill in US Puts Attention on Pipelines, Waterways
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish In early July, an oil pipeline broke under the Yellowstone River in the western state of Montana. The Yellowstone is America's longest undammed river. The spill happened downstream from Yellowstone National Park. The burst pipe spilled as much as one thousand barrels of crude oil -- more than one hundred sixty thousand liters -- into the river. Workers shut off the Exxon Mobil pipeline, and the company continued to clean up the spill. But the river was at flood levels and flowing quickly, carrying oil downstream into wetlands, fields and yards. Exxon Mobil spokeswoman Claire Hassett said local officials had ordered a temporary shutdown of the pipeline in May to check on its condition. They were concerned with heavy rains and rising waters. But, she said, "we determined that it was safe to operate and ... we don't know what has caused this leak."Susan Casey-Lefkowitz is with the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group. She says the spill shows the dangers of mixing pipelines and waterways, "especially when they are running under some of our most precious river systems that are important not just for wildlife, but also for our communities. The Yellowstone River is critical for irrigation, for example, and so it serves the needs of a lot of farmers and communities along its path."Andy Black heads the Association of Oil Pipe Lines, an industry group whose members include pipeline owners and operators. He says, "We have processes both within companies and at the associations to share learning and best practices and pursue the goal which is zero accidents."Mr. Black says the industry does not need more federal and state rules. "The regulations cover the major causes of pipeline failures, and we do not see any gaps." Susan Casey-Lefkowitz disagrees. One concern, she says, is the future of the Ogallala aquifer, a major source of water for America's central plains. A proposed pipeline called Keystone XL would cross the Ogallala to carry oil produced from tar sands in Canada for processing in Texas. Ms. Casey-Lefkowitz says, "Ironically it would actually cross the Yellowstone River where the spill just happened." For VOA Special English, I'm Mario Ritter.

Environmental friendly cure for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico
See in the video the oil spill shrink by 80% for yourself: We filled water in white plastic pool. We added 1 liter crude oil on the water surface. Then, we added less than 0.5ml vegetarian formula, developed by Hanan Elraz from Green-Tec. Within few seconds the oil spill shrunk by 80% from its original size. Being 80% smaller in size, the oil spill can be pumped and recollected much easier. The water around the shrunk spill remains clear and clean and water pH remains the same (as was measured by the orange pH meter you can see in the video). With this formula, the Gulf of Mexico can be cleaned better and faster of the oil spill caused by the accident in the BP off-shore drilling rig, and so does other oil spills around the world.

Helicopter from the Ukraine Ministry of Emergency Situations 18. Waves breaking on shoreline 19. Birds in flight over water STORYLINE: Environment workers are battling to contain thousands of gallons of oil following a killer storm that sank at least 11 ships and split an oil tanker in two, in the waters of the Kerch Strait between Russia and Ukraine. Officials from Ukraine's Environment Ministry moved into the area to assess the extent of the damage. Vitali Sokolov from the Ukraine Ministry of Emergency Situations said the effects of the pollution would be long lasting. "All this is bad, very bad, bad and unpleasant," he said. Officials called the break up of the tanker an environmental disaster for the region and warned that the 560,000 gallons of spilled fuel oil, which has killed an estimated 30,000 birds, could cause long-lasting damage to marine life. Leading Russian environmentalists, meanwhile, said the oil spill was triggered by years of official negligence that allowed oil transport ships to use outdated and inadequate equipment. Sunday's storm battered vessels plying the waters of the narrow Kerch Strait, connecting the Sea of Azov with the Black Sea. Russia ships almost one-quarter of its oil exports through Black Sea ports through the Bosphorus and beyond. The Russian state environmental safety watchdog, Rosprirodnadzor, said the most important task now is to build a dam to prevent the slick from floating into the Sea of Azov. However, Russia and Ukraine have a long-running argument over which country controls the waterway. Ukraine has objected in the past to Russian plans to build a similar dam. Russian Prime Minister Viktor Zubkov headed to the Black Sea region on Tuesday to assess the damage and discuss the clean up with Ukrainian officials. Ukraine's Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych said he would meet with Zubkov and called for a review of bilateral relations.

Cuba and US sign accord to clean up oil spills
(9 Jan 2017) Cuba and the United States signed an accord Monday agreeing on cooperation for cleaning up oil spills and other contamination in the Gulf of Mexico and the Florida Straits. The agreement is another step in the Obama Administration's efforts to solidify its legacy of normalization with the island nation before a Republican administration takes over later this month. The agreement calls on both countries to establish a bilateral operations plan in the event of a spill or other pollution in waters shared by the two nations. The Cuban and the U.S. Coast Guard already cooperate over migration and drug enforcement in the Caribbean, coordinating interdiction and control efforts and sharing information over activity in the waters of the Florida Straits. Both sides say the coordination over controlling potential pollution in the Caribbean is crucial to minimizing the effects of oil or other contaminants in waters off coastal communities in both countries.

On anniversary of Exxon Valdez oil spill, activists fear new disaster
This week marks the 26th anniversary of the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill that dumped over 11 million gallons of crude oil into the sea, destroying hundreds miles of Alaska's coastline and killing thousands of seabirds and hundreds of sea otters, seals, bald eagles and orca whales. Environmental activists are concerned about permits that Shell Oil now has to drill in the Arctic Ocean. They cite a study indicating a 75% chance that a large spill could occur there. Despite potential risks the Department of the Interior is expected to approve exploration plans this week.

Oil Spill Puts Financial Pressure on BP
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish BP is one of the world's largest energy companies. It reported a profit of about six billion dollars in the first three months of this year. That was more than double compared to a year ago. Now, BP faces growing political pressure over the worst oil spill in American history. Oil has been flowing from its damaged well in the Gulf of Mexico since April. But the company formerly called British Petroleum also faces growing financial pressure. Investors fear the long-term costs for cleanup, recovery and fines. BP's market value fell more than sixty billion dollars as its share price fell by as much as a third. On June third, BP was finally able to cut a damaged pipe at the well using robotic vehicles. The cut was not exactly as hoped, but it was progress. Crews then turned to placing a cap over the pipe -- not to stop it, but to direct at least some of the oil to ships on the surface. The leak is about one thousand five hundred meters under the sea. Yet it may not be fully controlled before August. Workers are drilling two relief wells in an effort to ease pressure on the damaged well. President Obama returned to the Gulf for his third visit since the disaster began. The Deepwater Horizon, an oil and gas drilling rig, exploded on April twentieth. In June, Attorney General Eric Holder announced criminal as well as civil investigations. He said: "The Department of Justice will ensure the American people do not foot the bill for this disaster and that our laws will be enforced as much as possible." By some estimates, the cost of the cleanup could reach thirty-seven billion dollars. The owner of the rig, the Swiss company Transocean, has asked to have its responsibility limited to twenty-seven million dollars. The request is based on a law from eighteen fifty-one. But the Justice Department says that is not enough. The government could also use violations of other federal laws such as the Clean Water Act to collect money for the spill. Oil has already reached more than one hundred kilometers of coastline in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. And it threatens the west coast of Florida. Areas of the Gulf have been closed to fishing. But job losses in the fishing industry are not the only worry. The Atlantic hurricane season officially began June first. Some people worry that officials could take their land if it becomes polluted by oil in a storm. And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Frontline, ProPublica Examine BP's Dismal Safety Record and Gulf Oil Spill
The past decade was one of rapid growth for BP, a company that now dominates the oil industry. Mergers expanded the BP empire and cost-cutting helped keep shareholders happy. The newest collaboration between Frontline and ProPublica is an hour-long documentary called "The Spill". It looks into whether that profits-first kind of corporate culture contributed to the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon last spring. Correspondent Martin Smith and investigator Abrahm Lustgarten have joined forces to report on BP's poor safety record and the signals missed by the company and government along the way leading up to the Gulf oil disaster. From a Texas plant explosion in 2005 that killed 15 workers to the 2006 oil spill on Alaska's North Slope, BP's recent track record may have warned of a deeper problem. Smith spoke with Hari Sreenivasan about the documentary airing tonight on most PBS stations.

Officials are currently investigating the cause of the leak, CNN reported. TransCanada, the company that owns the pipeline, said it detected a drop in pressure around 6 a.m. on Thursday morning and shut down the pipeline. The pipeline runs from Hardesty, Alberta to Cushing, Oklahoma and Wood River/Pakota, Illinois. The company said in a statement, "the section of pipe along a right-of-way approximately 35 miles (56 km) south of the Ludden pump station in Marshall County, South Dakota was completely isolated within 15 minutes and emergency procedures were activated." TransCanada said it received permission from the landowner to investigate the spill and plan cleanup, the Washington Post reported. This would be the largest Keystone oil spill to date in South Dakota, said state spokesman for the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Brian Walsh, CNN reported. ----------------------------------------­­---------------------------------------­-­---------------- Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Slime Sam and Sue's morning routines are very simple and include homemade breakfast and fighting over Nutella. Every single time! It was an early morning and Sue was really excited to sleep in on her day off. But obviously, Sam had other plans. He woke up early and tried to wake up Sue. That wasn't possible at the moment so he decided to find his friends and have something to eat because he was so hungry. To his deepest disappointment, no friends nor candy were to be found. No matter how hard he looked he couldn't find any candy, Ducky, T-Rex, Wonder Woman or anybody at all! Well, this is just ridiculous, Sam thought. He headed back to Sue and made another attempt to wake her up. But this time he has a secret weapon disguised as a water blaster. Very quietly and carefully he approached Sue and sprinkled her fingers. But alas, all he got was a splash back from Sue who took away his brilliant wakeup tool. I can't take it anymore, Sam said, and he reached out to the last resort, the alarm clock. After being yelled at, splashed water at and rang at Sue got up to show the mischievous slime the time of his life. He ran away, found Sue's Nutella jar and ate it all! When Sue found out she was furious as Sam just took away her breakfast! What do you do when you have nothing to eat? Well, a regular person would probably go out and eat or buy groceries but not DIY-cooking-crafting master Sue! She set her mind on making Nutella at home and got right to it.

The nuts release their oil and turn into a paste! 🍋Now let's combine milk powder, sugar, cocoa and vanilla sugar. 🍋And stir it really well. 🍋Now let's add warm milk to the mixture. 🍋Stir it until there are no lumps. 🍋Warm the mixture on a hot plate and keep stirring it. 🍋Now, when it's hot, add the nut paste. 🍋And stirring, stirring, stirring... 🍋Add the butter next and keep stirring. Don't let it boil though! 🍋When the mixture becomes thicker you can remove it from the heat. 🍋Pour it in a Nutella jar very carefully. 🍋Leave to cool. 🍋Make your own Nutella label and surprise your friends with this customized jar!

Drilling for oil & gas: Commingled Production
Commingling is an efficient way of producing oil and gas. It is not an entirely new concept – OMV Austria has been using it for years after reviving it. Applying this technique, two reservoirs will produce at the same time instead of producing one after the other. The advantage and main goal is accelerating production. -------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to the OMV Channel: http://www.youtube.com/OMV Follow our Blog: http://www.omv.com/blog Follow us on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/omv Follow us on LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/company/omv Follow us on XING: http://www.xing.com/company/omv Follow us on Facebook: http://www.omv.com/portal/01/com/facebook
