Note: This product has not been tested by Texican Crude &
Hydrocarbons, LLC to determine its specific health hazards. Therefore, the information provided in this section includes health hazard information on the product components.
Eyes: Sight to moderate eye irritation.
Skin: Moderately irritating; causes redness, drying of skin.
Inhalation: Will cause narcosis and/or chemical pneumonitis.
High concentrations of hydrogen sulfide can cause
headache, dizziness, unconsciousness and/or death.
Ingestion: Extremely irritating to throat and stomach. Causes excitation, loss of consciousness, convulsion, cyanosis, congestion and capillary hemorrhaging of the lung and internal organs.
Skin irritation. The long-term, repeated application of crude to the skin of laboratory mice (without washing between applications) resulted in a statistically significant increase in the incidence of skin tumors. Crude oil contains benzene, which can cause degeneration in blood forming organs leading to anemia which may further degrade to leukemia.
May aggravate pre-existing dermatitis. May cause blood-forming disorders, or lead to kidney or liver dysfunction. Contact with full strength or dilute formulations of this product or exposure above and below exposure limits may aggravate pre-existing dermatitis or respiratory disorders in certain individuals. This product contains benzene, which can cause degeneration in blood forming organs leading to anemia which may further degrade to leukemia.
Eye Contact: Flush thoroughly with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, including under the eyelids. Get medical attention.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash affected areas
with soap and water. If irritation persists, get medical attention.
Remove to fresh air. If breathing has

Do not induce vomiting. If spontaneous
occurs hold the victim’s head lower than their hips
to prevent aspiration.

Use a smothering technique for extinguishing fire of this flammable liquid. Do not use a forced water stream directly on crude oil fires as well this will scatter the fire. Firefighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing.
Remove source of heat or ignition including internal combustion engines and power tools. Clean up spill but do not flush to sewer or surface water. Ventilate area and avoid breathing vapors or mists.
Store in tightly closed containers in a dry cool place, away from sources of heat or ignition. Ground and bond all transfer and storage equipment to prevent static sparks and equip with self- closing valves, pressure vacuum bungs and flame arrestors. Empty containers may contain residue (liquid/or vapor) and can be dangerous. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind or expose such containers to heat, flame, sparks, or other
sources of ignition; they may explode and cause injury or death.
Eye Protection: Remove contact lenses and wear chemical safety
glasses or goggles where contact with liquid
or mist may occur.
Skin Protection: Wear insulating gloves and protective clothing
when contact with skin may occur. Wash with
soap and water before eating, drinking or
smoking. Launder contaminated clothing before
Inhalation: CRUDE OIL MAY CONTAIN HYDROGEN SULFIDE. NIOSH
approved respiratory protection should be used
when handling crude of high or unknown
hydrogen sulfide content and to reduce
airborne concentrations to allowable
occupational exposure levels.
Ventilation: Provide adequate general and local
ventilation: (1) to maintain airborne chemical
concentrations below applicable exposure
limits, (2) to prevent accumulation of
flammable vapors and formation of explosive
atmospheres, and (3) to prevent formation of
oxygen deficient atmospheres, especially in
confined spaces. [Note: this product may
release gases or vapors that can displace
oxygen in enclosed areas.]

Chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm may be found in crude oil and petroleum products. Although it is possible to sufficiently refine a crude oil or its end products to remove the potential for cancer, we are advising that one or more of the listed chemicals may be present in some detectable quantities. Read and follow directions and use care when handling crude oil and petroleum products.
