Lukoil gets approval for new oil spill response solution

Source: Lukoil

Russian oil company Lukoil has received an approval for a new oil spill response technology from Russia’s State Expert Review Agency.

Lukoil said that the technology was based on the use of absorbents and biotechnologies and designed specifically for marine and freshwater ecosystems of the Arctic region.

According to the company, the pilot testing proves that the technology, which already acquired nine patents, is effective and can be applied in real life conditions.

The distinctive property of the technology is in specific strains of microorganisms that can be used in the Arctic regions, where the application of conventional oil containment and skimming techniques is hindered by the harsh environment.

Lukoil’s new development implies the use of special biologicals for marine, fresh, and mesohalobiotic environments.

The company added that these biologicals do not form any toxic compounds in air or water, and no harmful substances are used to produce them.

With the ability to treat contaminated areas out of easy reach in extremely low temperatures, the technology is best suited for the environment of the Arctic and the Atlantic.

Minimizing the risk of greasing of integuments of marine animals and birds among other things, the new technology complies with Lukoil’s biodiversity preservation plan, developed at the instruction of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the safe development of the Arctic region.
