As people consume more goods, travel to further destinations, and require updated technology products more frequently, the number of petroleum-based products rises accordingly. Likewise, as demand for more petroleum-based products increases, more oil is extracted from reservoirs and transported across the globe. As a result, the number of oil spills from tankers, drilling rigs, pipelines, and containers continues to grow with the environment suffering directly. Animals are harmed, underground water becomes contaminated, and topsoil is destroyed as oil is spilled carelessly through both accidents and neglect from site operators. While also causing harm to the environment, oil spills also increase the likelihood of detrimental risks such as fires or expositions. It is impossible to predict every oil spillage accident, but understanding the effects they cause and how to properly decontaminate the local environment when they occur creates a safer ecosystem for everyone.


First, oil spills have an effect on nearly every variable in the area where they occur. From killing wildlife, to damaging homes, and contaminating natural resources, oil spills can have severe impacts that are nearly impossible to solve independently. An oil spill includes all categories, from transporting a tanker vessel across the ocean to a petrol container that is emptied in a garden. The size of the spill determines the multitude of the effects but does not decrease the severity of the situation. When an oil spill occurs, it may be difficult to find the most effective way to clean the contaminated area.
