   The drill cuttings which occur in a process of oil /gas production at the Black sea shelf is studied in the paper. Using 3d scanning laser Raman spectrometer the particle sizes of drill cuttings were determined. The results of study are of great practical importance for coastal engineering and ecological protection of the Black sea shelf.

Keywords: drill cuttings, particles, pollution, ecology, environmental safety, spectrometer.
