The petroleum pollutants are one of the basic soil contaminants. This is due to the widespread use of petroleum products. Crude oil and its derivatives appear in the environment mainly during their storage and transport. In the research, 16 soil samples from different places were collected and analysed. The selected locations were divided into agricultural, service, recreational, residential and industrial use. The petroleum hydrocarbons were determined, in the range from C10 to C40, according to the standard PN-EN ISO 16703  by means of gas chromatography. The determined results were mostly above the limited values  resulting from matching the soil to the group to which the specific area belongs.
