The invention relates to the field of ecology, and is intended to establish the perpetrators of unauthorized discharges of oil and oil products in water.

There is a method of identifying sources of oil pollution, including infrared and fluorescence spectroscopy, liquid and gas chromatography, including in combination with mass spectrometry (1).

The disadvantages of this method are the omission of the processes of degradation of crude oil and petroleum products during their entry into water bodies, as well as the use for identification only sophisticated analytical methods that are not always available and justified from an economic point of view.

Known, selected as a prototype, how to identify the sources of oil pollution (2), which take samples of oil or oil products from the oil spill on the water surface and from vozmojnom weathering under a fan and a source of UV light for 4 hours; all the analyzed samples dissolved in heptane, dried and identification carried out by the methods of spectrofluorometry (SF), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and capillary gas-liquid chromatography (KHJH).

The known method takes into account the processes of degradation of the oil samples by artificial weathering and exposure to UV-light simulating the solar radiation.

The disadvantage of this method is that the proposed method of weathering, as, in principle, any method of artificial weathering, can not adequately reproduce the natural conditions of degradation of oil spills, as these conditions in each case will differ significantly depending on weather conditions prevailing in the area of the spill (water and air temperature, wind strength, excitement, solar radiation). Also not taken into account the processes of transformation of the composition of oil spills that occur due to the dissolution of the oil components. All this ultimately reduces the reliability of the results identification of sources of oil pollution. The disadvantage of this method include the use of only complex, requiring a high liners shall obtain more reliable results, identify sources of oil pollution by reducing the complexity of their reception.

This object is achieved in that the selected oil samples from the surface of the water and of the probable sources of contamination, remove one of them water-soluble components, remains dissolved in chloroform, and then using thin-layer chromatography share of oil samples for major oil fraction hydrocarbons, resins, asphaltenes, with complete removal of volatile compounds, measure the optical density of the eluates hydrocarbon fractions compare oil samples in the ultraviolet and infrared regions of the spectrum and the intensity of their luminescence, and identification is performed according to the coincidence or difference of the concentrations of hydrocarbons, resins and asphaltenes in the samples and the ratio of the optical characteristics of hydrocarbon fractions: E/D, E/I, I/D, where

E - the sum of the optical densities of hydrocarbon fractions in the infrared region of the spectrum;

D is the optical density of the hydrocarbon fraction in the ultraviolet region of the spectrum;

I - intensity luminescence hydrocarbon fraction.

With the emergence of complex, controversial issues of identity composition of the compared samples additionally using infrared spectrosco deviceroot source pollution by coincidence or difference of the intensity ratio of the absorption bands.

The positive effect of the proposed method is achieved by removal of comparable oil samples volatile and water-soluble components and use for identification of the optical characteristics of the fractions of oil pollution, resistant to degradation processes.

The method is as follows.

Take oil samples from the spill on the water surface, as well as from possible sources of contamination. From the samples to remove water-soluble components, remains dissolved in chloroform, and then using thin-layer chromatography share of oil samples for major oil fraction hydrocarbons, resins, asphaltenes and simultaneously removed from them volatile components. Then measure the optical density of the hydrocarbon fractions of all of the compared samples in the ultraviolet (E) and infrared (D) regions of the spectrum and the intensity (I) of the luminescence of these factions, and the identification is carried out by the coincidence or difference of the concentrations of hydrocarbons, resins and asphaltenes in the samples and the ratio of the optical characteristics of hydrocarbon fractions E/D, E/I, I/d

If you need additional identification meth is stoltenow all oil samples and identify the source of contamination by coincidence or difference of the intensity ratio of the absorption bands.

Identification criteria, the obtained IR method separately for hydrocarbons, resins and asphaltenes are characterized by a better reproducibility than the original samples.

Example 1. The proposed method was tested in oil spills in the port of Mariupol, when the sea was discharged bilge water. A possible source could be one of two ships (t/x): "Zadonsk" or "Ray."

The samples were drawn oil from Zadonsk" and "Beam" as well as from the spill on the sea surface. The samples were weighed 10 g, was added 1 l of distilled water and shaken for 10 minutes, removing the thus water-soluble fractions. Surfaced any insoluble in water, the oil samples were collected and dissolved in chloroform. Aliquots of the resulting solutions oil samples by thin-layer chromatography was divided into separate factions - hydrocarbons, resins and asphaltenes. At this stage of the analysis is the complete removal of volatile components.

Identification was carried out for the ratio of concentrations between the selected oil components. The results are presented in table 1.

In addition, all selected hydrocarbon fractions were measured optical density in the street is entification held against the measured optical characteristics of E/D, E/I, I/d

The measurement results of the optical characteristics of the hydrocarbons extracted from falling into the sea of oil products and of the probable sources of contamination are presented in table 2.

From tables 1, 2, it follows that bilge water entered the sea from the m/V "Zadonsk", since the optical characteristics of the bilge water t/x "Beam" is dramatically different from the bilge water t/x "Zadonsk and petroleum products, selected from the spill, while among themselves they do not differ.

Example 2. The method was tested 2nd time in the sea in the port of Mariupol were discharged bilge water. A possible source of contamination could be court "Stripping station-1" or "Volgo-Balt-137".

Studies were carried out analogously to example 1. In tables 3 and 4 presents the results of research on the relative content of the major oil components and optical characteristics of hydrocarbon fractions isolated from falling into the sea of oil products and of the probable sources.

Received identification criteria indicate that the likely source of the contamination is the vessel "Stripping station 1 as physico-chemical characteristics of its volt-137".

To confirm the source of contamination were used additional criteria of identification by infrared spectra. By the method of infrared spectroscopy (IR) were measured intensity of the absorption bands separately for hydrocarbons, resins and asphaltenes studied oil samples at various frequencies and graphs: on the x - axis (frequency) at which the measured intensity of absorption bands; on the y - axis relationship of the measured intensities of the absorption bands (E) to the reference intensity of the absorption band (Erap) (drawing), where schedule 1 to the hydrocarbon oil selected from the spill, schedule 2 - hydrocarbons bilge water vessel Stripping station-1", schedule 3 - hydrocarbons bilge water vessel Volgo-Balt-137", schedule 1a - resins and asphaltenes oil selected from the spill, schedule 2a - resins and asphaltenes bilge water vessel Stripping station-1", schedule 3A - resins and asphaltenes bilge water vessel Volgo-Balt-137".

In the drawing it is seen that schedules 1 and 1A coincide with schedules 2 and 2A, and schedules 3 and 3A differ significantly. The obtained results confirm the conclusion that the source of pollution of the waters of the port of Mariupol was the of more reliable results, identify sources of oil pollution by using a more simple and cost-effective ways.
