Produced water which is the largest waste discharge from the production phase of oil gas wells has several components of toxic concern, ranging from heavy metals to soluble hydrocarbons. Management is normally aimed at minimizing or reducing the toxicity of discharged volumes. This study evaluated the physico-chemical properties and some trace metals constituents of ten produced water samples from five selected oil fields in Niger Delta to determine the extent of compliance with standards of… Expand

TLDR
It is reasonable to propose an accelerating principle of nature that naturally shortened the time for cell formation to a billion years or less, and this hypothetical principle is thought to be responsible for the discrepancy between statistics and observation. Expand
