In July of 1998, private and government laboratories in British Columbia and Alberta were requested by the British Columbia Ministry of the Environment, Lands, and Parks (BCMELP) to participate in a Petroleum Hydrocarbon round robin quality assurance study. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the performance and associated variability of BC Environment?s new analytical methods for Petroleum Hydrocarbons (Draft 2.0, October 1998). Nine laboratories participated in the round robin study, which evaluated the new hydrocarbon methods using eight Reference Samples containing petroleum hydrocarbons, and seven Quality Control (QC) samples that are daily QC requirements specified by the methods. Where applicable, Polycyclic and Monocyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH and MAH) were evaluated in addition to the aggregate hydrocarbon parameters described in the methods. Replicate analyses (n=6) were performed by ASL Analytical Service Laboratories for the same fifteen samples, and are included in this report as Single
