We have been told that there is a form to be filled out and a waiting list to request oil (MC252). We need to obtain oil to conduct exposure experiments. We would appreciate any information you have on how to go about requesting BP oil.

1 Answer

BP has a tiered approach in responding to requests for oil samples.

BP will determine if:
1. Analytical data from Mississippi Canyon 252 oil is sufficient for the needs of the researcher

2. A surrogate oil - another light Louisiana crude - would work (especially if the request is for a large volume of oil)

3. MC252 oil is absolutely necessary for the needs of the researcher

All requests from interested researchers should be directed to Mike R. Green (, Reference Oil Request Manager. The Reference Oil Request team will respond to researchers and work with the researchers to determine which option will meet their needs.
