Understanding the phase behavior of oil and water following the events of a deep water blowout is of great utility to the oil and gas industry. The interfacial phenomena occurring between the spilled oil and seawater are of great significance in the efforts of cleaning up, dispersing or burning the spilled oil. Regardless of the containment process, a good understanding is needed to aid in the processes of collection and separation of oil/water mixtures collected at varying depths and to efficiently design remedial measures.
