    The discharges of oil derricks contain hydrocarbons, free oil, heavy metals, radionucleides, and other additives that can contaminate the area around them for several kilometers. These can become suspended in water as superfine particles and suffocate wildlife, can poison wildlife, and smother the ocean floor with artificial sediments. As the discharges continue to settle, another problem arises: How to move them or take apart the production platform without releasing serious toxins into the environment.
