Exploration & Production | Sokerol - Oil Absorbent for Chemical & Oil Spills

Approximately 89 million barrels of oil and liquid fuels are consumed per day worldwide, that's nearly 32 billion barrels per year. Oil, gas and coal fired power plants provide the world’s population and industries with 90% of their daily energy needs. World energy markets are continually expanding and companies spend billions of dollars annually to maintain and increase their coal, oil and gas production.

The global coal mining industry, operated by over 35,000 businesses, generates an annual revenue of $1 trillion dollars and has grown over the past five years at an average rate of 20.5%. Iron ore mining has grown by an average rate of 23.5% over the same period and generates nearly $250 billion in revenues annually. 

The ultra-heavy machinery needed for exploring and developing mines and wells, as well as the contaminants used to extract commodities, constantly exposes the surrounding environment to risks including erosion, loss of biodiversity, and contamination of soil, ground and surface water. In most countries exploration and refining companies are required to follow stringent environmental codes to minimise the impact of their activities through the entire cycle of exploring, developing, extracting, and closing mines and wells. 

Sokerol has been a staple in mining, oil and gas industries for over 25 years. It is used in accidental spill clean-up caused by heavy equipment hydraulic failures as well as filtration of liquid drilling and extraction by-products. Oil, gas and mining companies rely on Sokerol for its effectiveness in ensuring minimal impact on the environment, cost reductions in treating contaminants, safety for operators, simplicity and effectiveness.
