The definitive guide to petroleum hydrocarbon fuel spill and leak causes, prevention, response, and cost recovery

Oil Spills and Gas Leaks highlights the complex nature of petroleum hydrocarbon fuel extraction methods, the unintended consequences when disasters occur, spill behavior, and environmental impact mitigation. This practical resource discusses engineering techniques; long-term biological and environmental effects; dealing with insurance claims, litigation, and legislation in overlapping jurisdictions; and much more. Featuring global case studies and best practices, this timely volumeprovides an in-depth understanding of how oil spills and gas leaks occur and describes the most effective environmental assessment, remediation, and restoration options available to respond to these industrial accidents.


  • The role of petroleum hydrocarbon fuels in society
  • Geology and geochemistry of oil and gas deposits
  • Oil and gas well drilling and production issues
  • Behavior of oil spills in various environments
  • Behavior of gas leaks in various environments
  • Assessment of spills and leaks
  • Toxicity issues and exposure pathways
  • Subsurface investigations
  • Sampling strategies and remedial approaches
  • Sampling methods on land and offshore
  • Prevention, oversight, and mitigation
  • Remediation of oil spills
  • Case histories and cost recovery
  • Oil spills and wildlife
  • Oil spills and safety issues
  • Conclusions and recommendations
