This report provides an overview of four years (1976-1980) of trace metal investigations conducted as a part of a larger multidisciplinary, marine, environmental assessment program of the Buccaneer gas and oil field. Concentrations of Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Hg, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Sb, Se, Sr, Tl and Zn have been determined in surficial sediments, subsurface sediments, suspended particulate matter, seawater, produced brine, crude oil and various tissues of biological organisms collected seasonally near two petroleum production platforms. Concentrations of Ba, Cd, Cr, Co, Cu, Mn, Pb, Sr, Hg and Zn in surficial sediments have been related to the platforms or activities on them.
