During this remote sump closure BioLogix was successfully used to remediate a remote oil field sump previously left untreated for decades.  Closure required all non-utilized oil production sumps closed to a cleanup standard of <1% concentration.  Successful and timely closures were achieved with BioLogix.

The timeframe for successful closure varied with the sump size and level of contamination.  The following table shows the treatment results accomplished with BioLogix are listed below:

In less than 30 days the oil and grease concentrations in the sludge in the pits was reduced to less than the regulatory requirement allowing closure.
