Determination, and environmental assessment of hydrocarbons in water samples following a release of oil from the Clair platform

Scottish Marine and Freshwater Science Vol 7 No 29

Following a leak from the Clair platform on 2 October 2016, water samples were collected at five depths from ten sites, including a reference site, to assess any environmental impact of the oil leak in the area. All samples were analysed for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and two samples (9.9 m and 29.7 m samples) from each site were analysed for n-alkanes. The total PAH concentrations in the water samples were low, ranging from 1.4 to 16.3 ng l-1 and could be considered to be at background concentrations. The n-alkane profiles showed no evidence of crude oil contamination.

Data Dictionary

Samples were collected from ten locations, including a reference site, on 6 October 2016 from the MRV Scotia (Appendix 1). Samples were returned to the Marine Scotland Science, Marine Laboratory on 8 October 2016. Water samples were collected using a Rosette Sampler at five different depths at each location and transferred into solvent washed, glass bottles (2.5 l). Samples were kept at room temperature and were extracted immediately on arrival to the Marine Laboratory on 8 October 2016.
