Large volumes of produced water are generated and discharged to the coastal and ocean waters worldwide from offshore oil and gas production facilities. There is concern that the chemicals in the produced water may harm marine ecosystems. This book summarizes the bioavailability and marine ecotoxicology of metal and organic contaminants that may occur in oil well produced water at concentrations significantly higher than those in ambient seawater. The contaminants of concern include arsenic, barium, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, mercury, radium isotopes, zinc, monocyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, phenols, and bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate. The first part of the book is a detailed discussion of the chemical composition of produced water from offshore oil wells worldwide and its fates following discharge to the ocean. The remaining chapters of the book summarize the current scientific literature on the sources and distributions in the ocean of each of the contaminants of concern and their bioaccumulation and toxicity to marine organisms. This book will be of value to: environmental scientists in the oil and gas industry; marine toxicologists and ecological risk assessors in academia, government, and industry; government regulatory agencies concerned with marine environmental protection. The book advances the concept that bioavailability evaluation must be included in all ecological risk assessments and other environmental assessments of chemical contaminants in marine and freshwater ecosystems.

Review:

J.S. Gray
...In summary, brief, but sound coverage of the main topics bioaccumulation (19 pages) and on produced water (35 pages). If you are looking for a comprehensive coverage of heavy metals and PAHs and their toxicity then this book provides you with that information (251 pages). The book is well referenced and up-to-date with 118 pages of references.
Marine Pollution Bulletin
K. Hylland
...All in all, this book is a "must" for researchers and managers concerned with environmental impacts of offshore activities, although some will disagree with the author's assessments of expected environmental impacts caused by different contaminants. The data is well presented and generally well referenced.
Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology
C. Frid
...There can be little doubt that this book provides a state of the art synthesis of the effects of contaminants derived from produced water on marine organisms. ...represents a significant resource for workers in the areas of ecotoxicology, oil pollution, environmental assessment, ecology, and resource and waste management. It should be in every library and reference collection used in support of these activities.
Organic Geochemistry

"The book advances the state-of-the-art by not only documenting how to monitor the environment, but also referring the reader to other more detailed comprehensive books. This nicely illustrated book should be useful at the senior undergraduate level as well as to students initiating graduate studies in environmental sciences."
-INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY, 2005
