Characterization of the microbial community structure and the physicochemical properties of produced water and seawater from the Hibernia oil production platform.

Abstract

Hibernia is Canada's largest offshore oil platform. Produced water is the major waste byproduct discharged into the ocean. In order to evaluate different potential disposal methods, a comprehensive study was performed to determine the impact from the discharge. Microorganisms are typically the first organisms to respond to changes in their environment. The… (More)
