Oil Spill Optimized Contingency and Recovery Techniques Using ADIOS2

Hamad Al-Mebayedh

Abstract—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.

Index Terms—ADIOS2, oil weathering model, oil spill in water, oil budget.
