Our oil spill remediation specialists are available to advise clients about the most effective oil spill response techniques that help reduce risk to third party properties, buildings, water and water tables and surrounding areas.
There are three basic ways to help with an oil spill remediation, and our experts firstly determine the most appropriate remediation method depending on the location of the oil spill, any potential hazards, the weather conditions, waves and currents are a huge consideration as it is more difficult to use booms and skimmers when it is at sea and due to high wind.
Oil Spill Remediation Techniques
- Bio Remediation
- Dig and Dump
- Pump and Treat
- Chemical Oxidation
- Air sparging
- Ground Water remediation
- Installation of cut off trenches and barrier walls
Adding biological agents to the oil spill acts by breaking down the oil through a process called biodegradation. Biodegradation occurs when bacteria and other micro-organisms break down the oil into harmless substances, such as fatty acids and carbon dioxide. Remediation crews can speed up this process of biodegradation by adding fertilizing nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorous, which encourage the growth of micro-organisms.
Use of dispersants to break down the oil spill: Dispersants should not be used where it can affect living organisms, as the chemicals and broken-down oil can enter into the food chain.
Chemical dispersants can be used to break down the oil and speed up its natural biodegradation by breaking the oil spill into droplets, which helps the oil and water to mix, and for the slick to be absorbed naturally. This method is not appropriate for all oil spills, and especially not in all locations.
Booms & Skimmers
Booms & Skimmers can be used to surround and isolate the oil slick and collect the oil from the surface of the water. These are buoyant booms, which can be solid or inflatable tubes. The booms usually rise almost 1 meter above water level, and have a skirt attached that hangs below the water. Skimmers suck or scoop the oil into tanks.
