Ocean Therapy Solutions – Status of Program

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Ocean Therapy Solutions (Kevin Costner’s company) and BP held a news conference to update us on the ongoing efforts to deploy Ocean Therapy’s oil separating centrifuge devices in the Gulf of Mexico to clean up the Horizon oil spill.

Kevin Costner explained that BP ordered 32 of his oil cleaning machines. Three of the units are currently aboard ships in the Gulf, but it will take about approximately 1 to 1.5 months for the remaining units to be built.

Officials advised that skimmer vessels will pump oily water onto the ships where the centrifuges can process a total of 600,000 gallons per day, separating oil and debris from water. Costner said he is gratified the technology is being deployed.
