Abstract

Since new, strict regulations for oil content on drill cuttings were introduced in 1993, produced water has become the major contributor of oil discharge to the sea from the Norwegian oil industry. As a concequence, much focus has been placed on possible acute toxicity of produced water and the identification of natural components and chemicals which contribute most to that toxicity.
