Although not frequently a problem, recent incidents at sea have led to large amounts of crude oil being released and dispersed throughout the Gulf of Mexico, such as in the Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill of 2010.

One of the most frequently desired quantities in environmental chemistry is the amount of diesel range organics (DROs) contained within a sample. The analysis of DROs is performed in almost every major environmental laboratory under the US EPA Method 80151 or by using the similar ISO 9377-22. This method is commonly used to determine the contamination of alkanes from C10 to C28 caused by leaking underground storage containers.
