The estrogen receptor (ER) agonist potency of offshore produced water discharges was examined via bioassay-directed chemical analysis. The in vitro estrogen receptor (ER) and androgen receptor (AR) agonist potency of five produced water samples collected from oil-production platforms in the British and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea was determined by using the yeast estrogen and androgen screens. Produced water samples were extracted in situ on the production platforms by using large-volume… CONTINUE READING
