Hydrocarbons as free phase contaminants Key considerations Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids Identification of free phase product Groundwater sampling Physical properties of free phase product Estimation of dissolved phase concentrations in the presence of free phase. Abstract. The Borden experimental site for studies of groundwater contamination was established in in a small area of a large military base (Canadian Forces Base Borden) situated 60 km northwest of Toronto, by: 6.

Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Organic Chemicals in Ground Water: Prevention, Detection, and Remediation Conference November 29 - December 1, • Houston, Texas The Petroleum Hydrocarbons Conference/Expo was sponsored by the National Ground Water Association and the American Petroleum Institute, and was comprised of 3 days of technical. The guidance does not address petroleum hydrocarbons leaching to ground water. If leaching from soil impacted by petroleum hydrocarbons to ground water is a concern at the site, refer to the DERR Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) leaching guidance. Also, in a spill situation where an immediate response is needed to address the release,File Size: KB.   Hydrocarbon Phase Behaviour 1. Hydrocarbon Phase Behaviour 2. What is a phase? • A phase is any homogeneous and physically distinct region that is separated from another such region by a distinct boundary • For example a glass of H2O with some ice in it contains one component (the water) exhibiting three phases; liquid, solid, and gaseous (the . Common Misconceptions Key Concepts; LNAPL Distribution: LNAPL enters soil pores just as easily as groundwater (Section ).LNAPL floats on the water table or capillary fringe like a pancake and does not penetrate below the water table (Section ).Typically, water is the wetting fluid in the saturated zone, in direct contact with the soil, and occupies the smaller pores.

Petroleum hydrocarbon liquids (e.g., gasoline) and chlorinated solvents are only moderately soluble in water and often form separate phase liquids commonly referred to as NAPLs (nonaqueous phase liquids) when released into the environment. On one hand, when NAPLs are lighter (i.e., less dense) than water. Light and Heavy Extractable Petroleum Hydrocarbons in Solids or Water (LEPH & HEPH)”. Petroleum products that are captured by EPH have substantial components within the boiling point range of ~ nCnC32 (e.g. the majority of most diesel fuels, lubricating oils, greases, and waxes). Many petroleum products contain components within both. CHAPTER III BEHAVIOR OF HYDROCARBONS IN THE SUBSURFACE The purpose of this chapter is to supplement your knowledge of hydrocarbon behavior in the subsurface. This basic information lays the foundation for the principles and concepts used in the design of effective and efficient free product recovery Size: KB.
