| Book Description: |
Crude oil is a naturally occurring substance generated by geological and geochemical processes. A variety of petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel fuel, and heavy fuel oil are derived from this natural resource. Crude oil and petroleum products can vary greatly depending on where and how they were extracted and refined, and their unique characteristics influence how they will behave when released into water and how they will affect animals, plants, and their habitats.
