Oil Pollution is the resultant contamination of environment due to the presence of oil in excessive quantity. Oil contamination is a genuine danger to our environment and biological community and should be controlled with urgency. The oil contamination is influences the geotechnical properties of soil. So it?s a need to study the effect of diesel oil on geotechnical properties of soils. In this study, the variation of geotechnical properties like Atterberg limits, compaction characteristics, and unconfined compressive strength with the addition of diesel oil in marine clay was considered. The results showed that increase in the amount of diesel oil increase the Atterberg limits and decrease in compaction characteristics and unconfined compressive strength. Increasing diesel oil content will leads to decrease in strength. From the above test results it is obtained that 16% of diesel contaminated soil gives worst strength, so stabilized this oil contaminated soil with phosphogypsum [PG] in different percentage. Strength characteristics of oil contaminated soil improved maximum at 9% of phosphogypsum.
