Abstract

Crude oil spillage is one major means of environmental pollution in oil and gas exploration and production. Since 1976,<br>about 5334 cases of crude oil spillage releasing an estimated 2.8 million barrels of oil into the land, swamps, estuaries and<br>coastal waters have been reported in Nigeria (Odiete, 1999). Heavy metals in crude oil are of varying concentration that can<br>affect the concentration of the naturally occurring heavy metals in the soil after a spill. This situation brings about an artificial<br>imbalance in the heavy metals concentration in the soil.
