Product Appearance Odor Special Behavior Hazards
Crude Oil Black liquid Similar to gasoline or diesel fuel*
  • Flows with the land profile
  • Flow depends on temperature and viscosity. Can be thick and slow moving or light and able to move quickly.
  • Extremely flammable and explosive, especially when first released
  • Suffocation can occur if gas displaces the oxygen in an enclosed area
  • Benzene is a toxic and volatile element in crude oil; benzene levels in crude vary greatly
Synthetic Crude, Condensate or Refined Products Light brown or yellow liquid Similar to gasoline or diesel fuel*
  • Flows with the land profile
  • Extremely flammable and explosive
Natural Gas Liquid Steam-like cloud or frost-like appearance on ground Similar to gas, but much stronger and extremely unpleasant
  • Heavier than air
  • Stays close to the ground in low-lying areas
  • Can displace oxygen
  • Extremely flammable and explosive
Diluent Clear to brown liquid Sulfur-like or rotten egg odor
  • Less dense and more fluid than crude oil
  • Extremely flammable, especially if vapors from the liquid are ignited
  • Potential explosive hazard if vapors seep into enclosed spaces
  • Suffocation can occur if gas displaces the oxygen in an enclosed area

*Some crudes and condensates contain hydrogen sulfides (H2S), which have a rotten egg smell and are toxic in high concentrations.
