Physiochemical properties of petroleum products Evaluation and characterization of physiochemical properties of petroleum products is crucial to predict environmental behaviour in the event of spills. This information can inform the prediction and modeling of fate and behavior of the oils in different environmental conditions. Good models of oil and petroleum products fate and behaviours are essential for spill preparedness planning, environmental effects and impact assessments, and choosing response and countermeasure strategies for the cleaning of spills. This database is a collection of physical properties, chemical compositions and simulated environmental behaviors of unrefined crude oils and refined petroleum products (including diesels, biodiesels, crude oils, intermediate and fuel oils, bitumen and diluted bitumen). The primary data source is measurement by the Emergencies Science and Technologies Section (ESTS) of Environment and Climate Change Canada, from oils gathered from diverse locations in North America and other parts of world. When applicable, the petroleum products were weathered by simulated evaporation weathering method in the ESTS lab to produce samples at different weathering states (light, moderately, heavily and very heavily weathered), followed by analyses based on American standard test methods (when available) or in-house methods. All data points for all the petroleum products are provided in a comprehensive table (.csv and .xls formats). In addition, an individual report for each oil sample is provided in portable data format (.pdf). 2017-05-24 2017-06-07 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentPetroleum productsdieselbiodieselcrude oilsintermediate fuel oilheavy fuel oilbunker Cbitumendiluted bitumendilbitphysical propertieschemical compositionfate and behavioroil spillspill modelingevaporationweathering stateweatheredmass lossdensityviscosityflash pointpour pointinterfacial tensionsurface tensionadhesionsulfur contentwater contentemulsionchemical dispersibilityboiling pointsimulated distillationSIMDISbenzenetolueneethylbenzenexyleneBTEXtotal petroleum hydrocarbonTPHpetroleum hydrocarbonsPHChydrocarbon contentSARAsaturatesaromaticsresinsasphalteneswax contentalkanespolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbonspolyaromatic hydrocarbonsPAHalkylated PAHaPAHterpeneshopanessteranestri-aromatic steranesbiomarkerscountermeasuredispersant effectivenessrefiningtransportationdistributionoperationclean-up Data Collection MethodologyPDF http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/scientificknowledge/spills-technology-databases/physiochemical-properties-of-petroleum-products/References_for_Physiochemical_properties_of_petroleum_Rfrences_pour_Proprits_physicochimiques_des_ptroliers_.pdf View EC Data Mart (English)HTML http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/scientificknowledge/spills-technology-databases/physiochemical-properties-of-petroleum-products View EC Data Mart (French)HTML http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/scientificknowledge/spills-technology-databases/physiochemical-properties-of-petroleum-products?lang=fr Physiochemical Properties of Petroluem ProductsCSV http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/scientificknowledge/spills-technology-databases/physiochemical-properties-of-petroleum-products/Physiochemical_Properties_of_Petroluem_Products-EN.csv Physiochemical Properties of Petroluem ProductsCSV http://donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/scientificknowledge/spills-technology-databases/physiochemical-properties-of-petroleum-products/Proprits_physicochimiques_des_produits_ptroliers-FR.csv
