How do you prevent oil spill?
An oil spill is when a pump or boat carrying oil breaks and makes a hole or break which releases mass amounts of oil into seas (depending on how big the hole is). This causes …what people call an oil spill. when oil is spilled in seas and it causes water pollution and makes many animals die.
Oil drilling companies should use automatic shut-off device installed in themain pipe where the oils pass going up....this would prevent the oil spill when ther is accident in… the flatform to contain the oil spill people who like to help can collect the oil and sellthe oil back to the british petroleum with premium price to speed up the clean up of the oil from the water...it will be like an open mine for people who like to volunteers...and be paid... you can stop oil spills by not poluting tje oceans! MAKE THE WORLD A HAPPY WORLD GO GREEN PLEASE THE ANIMALS ARE UNDER YOU CONTROL NOW HELP THEM PLEASE DO YOU WANT THEM TO DIE?
you can prevent oil spills by also preventing pollution. also before you start fueling, defueling, internal transfer etc.. make sure you check to make sure it is tight and the…re are no leaking glands. also you can use less electricity. so by turning off the lights in your house when your not in that room or something they are using less oil to make that electricity!!!!
Oil spills could be reduced in a number of ways. We can build better tankers, we can give people who pilot tankers better training, and possibly do less shipping of oil, if we… can cut back on our oil consumption, which would have several advantages in addition to reducing the risk of oil spills.
you take all you materials and burn them
They clean it off of the surface of the water by skimming the surface with Booms,skimmers,sorbents,chemicals,vaccums, and shovels. Hope this helps Then the skimmed oil, if …in larger quantities can be recycled economically.
we can prevent oil spills by transporting oil in another way rather than by boat. it is also okay to transport it by boat. the ship liners crew should just be careful in handl…ing them. because everytime an oil spill occurs in does not only affect the place but also the people in that place and also the living things in the sea or ocean. fishes die. coral reefs are destroyed. lots of people suffer. :)
Because the oil kills the fish and the other abiotic and biotic organisms in the water
oil forms a layer on water surface..aquatic animals,fishes etc.r not able 2 breathe & die....dead bodies further pollute water & sea..moreover harmful chemicals from oil enter… food chain via aquatic animals and disturbs ecosystem
No, they can't fix the oil spills because oil can't dissolve in the water for example sugar can but oil can't. I wish that answered your question. …
Note that there were 2 major BP oil spills. Alaska (2006) An oil pipe in Alaska, cracked and started leaking. The oil spill was not detected for many days. Gulf of Mexico …(2010) A methane leak, and an explosion, caused a fire aboard an offshore oil drilling rig. The explosion damaged the pipeline, causing pressurized oil, to gush into the ocean. See related questions for a more in depth description.
BP is utilizing several methods to fix the problem. BP has released chemicals into the ocean to absorb some of the oil. Relief wells, a long term fix, are due to be finished i…n August of 2010.
The oil spill occurred in Mississippi canyon block 252 about 50 miles off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico.
Oil spills occur in many different ways- pipe line breaks, barges capsizing, tanker accidents, storage tanks leaking, production platform accidents and well blowouts. The two …most famous spills are the Exxon Valdez oil spill caused by a tanker accident and the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico caused by a blowout. It is difficult to generalize on how an oil spill might be prevented. In tanker accidents, one of the recommendations was to build safer tankers with double hulls. The current focus in the US is how to make drilling deepwater exploratory wells in a safer manner. Deepwater exploratory wells require a more complex design. Wells blow out and pipelines fail at times because of faulty plans. In particular, well blow outs occur because the engineering design did not include all possibilities. In the Macondo well blowout, it appears that the cement used was not well tested, and could not stand up against the high pressures of the formation. Some experts feel that the oil industry should be more regulated. You may find this recommendation in the National Commission on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. See related links.
oil has a surtan cimical so yayOil fumes are toxic to plants. The oil also makes the surface of the water black, which allows no light to reach the plants, meaning that they c…an't photosynthesize. Marsh grass, mangroves and intertidal plants can all be killed or badly damaged by an oil spill.
Somewhere between 90-180 million gallons of oil has been spilled into the Gulf of Mexico from the 2010 BP oil spill. On June 19th, the official estimate is 35,000 to 60,000 …barrels a day, though internal BP documents concede it could be as high as 100,000 barrels a day. (Between 1,500,000 to 2,500,000 gallons, as high as 3,000,000 gallons a day. 6 - 10 million liters, as high as 12 million liters a day). The Alaska Prudhoe Bay disaster also caused by BP, spilled approximately 212,252 US gallons of crude oil onto the land, (6,000 barrels or 800,000 liters). 90-180 million gallons seems like a gratuitous amount of oil, but there are approximately 42 gallons in one barrel of oil. Globally, 85 million barrels are used per day. So at the worst... 180 million / 42 = 4,300,000 million barrels were spilled, which doesn't even come close to what the world uses in one day. However, that's still very bad for the environment.
