The report presents data that determines the composition of volatile organic compound emissions from oil production fields in Tulsa County, Oklahoma. Five points in the crude oil production process were samples: well heads, gathering tasks, oilfield pipeline tanks, pipeline terminal tanks, and refinery crude oil storage tanks. The samples were collected in Summa polished stainless steel canisters and analyzed by a gas chromatograph with dual flame ionization detectors. The analytical technique looked for ninety specific compounds; thirty were detected and are reported. In general the compounds in greatest abundance were ethane, propane, n-butane, 2-methyl butane, and n-pentane. The data developed under the study are for the composition of the volatile organic compounds; volatile organic compound emission rates were not determined.
