Claim 5000259 - Marine and coastal oil damage remediation (US$3,990,152)

     Kuwait was awarded US$3,990,152 to remediate marine and coastal areas as a result of contamination from more than 12 million barrels of oil released through a combination of offshore oil spills, the creation of a coastal oil-filled trench and oil deposits, wreckage of oil tankers and spills on offshore islands from tipped-over oil-filled tanks.

     The scope of work under the project plan involves the excavation of visibly contaminated material from the coastal oil deposit area, coastal oil trench and weathered oil layers and depositing the contaminated materials in a landfill, followed by raking/tilling the remaining soil. Detection and clearance of UXOs before excavation will be undertaken to ensure the safety of the field workers.
