—The methodology adopted was performed by
carrying out a review of existing literature, contacting
companies previously involved in recovering oil from water
worldwide, holding discussions with operators, this is then
applied to ADIOS2 the Automated Data Inquiry for Oil
Weathering Model to develop the ideal s Contingency and
Recovery Techniques. It is not possible to derive simple generic
relationships between petroleum mass loadings and ambient
concentrations that can be applied universally. The “fate”
(where it goes) and “persistence” (how long it remains in the
system) of petroleum in water are controlled by processes that
vary considerably in space and time. In a completion of this
study we extrapolate that, Most of the existing mechanical
recovery equipment was designed to collect oil using its
property to adhere to the surface material of the recovery unit.
This equipment can efficiently collect oil with certain
physicochemical properties at standard conditions and cannot
be used with equal competence both in warm and cold waters
and on variable oil types and properties. The recovery
efficiency significantly changes with time due to the oil slick
property changes and emulsion formation. Therefore,
multiphase interactions between oil, water, material of recovery
unit need to be studied thoroughly due to their strong influence
on the oil recovery process.
