Effect of Hazardous Waste Associated with Oil and Gas Projects in Onshore Region

B. Sunantha [2]


Abstract: Oil and gas projects within coastal region generate the large quantities of waste which are potentially very hazardous to the environment, micro organisms and human beings. Wastes can be generated from pipeline linking the platform to the shore, drilling of oil and gas wells, offshore platforms, building plants and usage of equipment. It deteriorates the environmental quality such as air, water and noise in the surrounding area belongs to the port and harbor and creates pollution from disposal of waste from both point sources and non point sources. It affects the lots of biological matter settles at the seafloor. During oil and gas projects, hazardous waste may release through the leaks and spills during transfer and storage and also by maintenance activities. The purpose of this paper is to provide an overview of environmental issues due to disposal of waste from oil and gas projects and to determine the effectiveness of measures to mitigate adverse effects on the environment. Findings were obtained from the interaction with experts working in these projects and secondary source of information. This paper concludes that recommended control measures can minimize the hazardous waste in oil and gas projects as per the guidelines of environmental aspects.
