Oil can be tested to identify the type or age of petroleum. Samples
are extracted and diluted in solvent and then measured for their
aromatic hydrocarbon content.
This evaluation study highlights the performance using Sitelab’s

proportions of a sample’s GRO and PAH concentrations will vary depending on
how old and what type of petroleum contamination is present.
