Oil spilt into the sea shows different characteristics with the passage of time according to the oil types with the influence of weather and sea conditions. To collect the spilt oil spillage appropriately and effectively, it is important to select proper methods of recovery that fit the characteristics of the oil that change from hour to hour.
Petroleum Association of Japan has been implementing circulating water channel experiments on the changes of properties of crude oils and heavy fuel oil with time since 1993.
Until 2000, we collected the data on the changes of 42 types of crude oil,2 types of fuel oil C and 1 type of fuel oil A. Now we publish all the data including photographs on the changes with time that we gained until 2000.
