Abstract:

Spills of petroleum hydrocarbons are major concern because of effects on marine life & beaches. In Canada most of offshore exploration takes place in Arctic or in areas where water tem peratures are low. Laboratory study made over 11 month period measuring rate of degradation of 3 hydrocarbon mixtures under simulated conditions of a marine sediment at temperatures of 15, 10 & 5 C. Aim was to predict rates of degradation at tempera tures below 5 C. Mixtures used were a crude oil, a Bunker C oil and a condensate. Low concentrations (1-3%) were mixed with sand & incorpated into sediment in which a flow of sea-water was maintained. Total counts of aerobic bacteria remained high.
