FROM 178,000 PPM to 600 PPM IN 18 MONTHS

In-Situ Remediation Of 350 Acres Of Crude Oil Spill

Our largest cleanup project, so fary, was a blowout of an oil well caused by an earthquake in Georgia.  The accident contaminated 350 acres (140ha) of a hillside with forest. Mechanical removal was impossible because of the threat of a massive landslide that potentially would damage the Ninotsminda village right below the site. Several remediation options were tested and BioCure was selected as it demonstrated the best results in a short period of time.
Most of the site was heavily contaminated during three days of the accident and TPH levels were varying from 178,000 ppm to 6500 ppm.

INITIAL STATE

AFTER 7 MONTHS

7 months after treatment began the site started revegetation.  we observed a significant drop in the TPH levels despite freezing winter weather for much of that time.
Heavy Contamination - 32%
Average Contamination - 54%
Mild Contamination - 72%
Water Contamination - 87%

AFTER 18 MONTHS

After eighteen months the site fully regenerated with TPH levels varying from 600 ppm to 25 ppm.
All the TPH analysis was done using TNRCC method 1006 – Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons, 10/10/2000, US EPA Method 418.1.
All results were confirmed and accepted by the Ministry of Environmental protection of Georgia and OSRL Limited.
