Abstract

There is keen interest in oxygen injection systems due to the increased evidence of in situ aerobic biodegradation of gasoline constituents, e.g., oxygenates (MTBE and TBA). Significant remediation-cost reductions are possible by stimulating indigenous microorganisms to degrade contaminants of concern by adding oxygen. A field demonstration of three commercial oxygen distribution technologies was performed in side-by-side test cells at the Port Hueneme, CA NETTS field site. Results, along with the test methodology, are discussed. The stability of the oxygen plumes in the pulsed gas injection and microbuble-based technologies test cells are also elucidated. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2007 Petroleum Hydrocarbons and Organic Chemicals in Ground Water: Prevention, Assessment and Remediation Conference (Houston, TX 11/5-6/2007).
