Determination of Some Biochemical Indices in Catfish from Rivers, Swamp and Commercial Fish Ponds in Oil and Non-oil Polluted Areas in Rivers and Anambra States, Nigeria: A Comparative Assessment

The ability of activated carbon (CSAC) and polypyrrole coated sawdust (PPy/SD) obtained from the fruit of Cordia sebestena’s gardening plant material to adsorb acid orange -7 from aqueous solutions was examined. The adsorption method is a viable treatment option, particularly if the adsorbent is affordable and easily available. Variations in experimental parameters such as pH,…

Application of Ultrasonic Velocity Profiler (UVP) in the Crude Oil Emulsion Pipeline Flow

Emulsion formation is undesirable in the oil and gas industry because it affects flow regimes and behaviour, reduces crude oil quality, occupies space in the pipeline, reduces mass flow rate, requires longer retention time in separation vessels, causes corrosion to the transport system, and contaminates catalyst used in the rinsing process. However, this is inescapable…

Considering the Features of Acoustic Bathymetry of Sludge in Oil Storage Tanks

The features of acoustic bathymetry of sludge in crude oil tanks are considered. Different parameters of crude oil and sludge which are important for the selection of acoustic parameters such as sound speed, the acoustic impedances of “oil-sludge” boundaries and sound attenuation are analyzed and compared with experimental data. The main sources of errors of…

Effect of Petroleum Crude Oil on Mineral Nutrient Elements, Soil Properties and Bacterial Biomass of the Rhizosphere of Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis Link C.K. Schneid.)

This study elevated the effect of petroleum crude oil contaminated soil on the nutrient elements, soil properties and bacterial biomass of the rhizosphere of Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis Link C.K. Schneid). Malondialdehyde (MDA) concentration increased in jojoba leaves when grown in petroleum oil polluted soil especially at 2% and 3% crude oil. It was noted that,…
