Following an exhaustive approval process, Cognition can now supply Remediation Services in Kuwait.
The Kuwait Oil Company is responsible for the implementation of a number of projects for the remediation of oil-contaminated soil within KOC oilfields damaged by Iraqi invasion against Kuwait and 1991 Gulf War. The programme involves a largescale environmental remediation and restoration undertaking, funded by the United Nations. The destruction of almost 700 oil wells, which took over a year to bring under control, resulted in a complex variety of oil contamination including wet oil lakes, dry oil lakes, contaminated piles, coastal deposits, oil-filled trenches and well-head pits.
Now an approved supplier, Cognition will be able to participate in future tenders to clean up the desert.
