The process of removing hydrocarbons that are located underground. The contamination is usually caused by spills or defective underground storage tanks that are leaking. The oil can be removed by using a belt skimmer or down well pump by accessing monitoring wells on site.
Abanaki oil skimmers have proven successful in thousands of applications, including in groundwater remediation systems. Abanaki’s specially designed oil skimmers remove hydrocarbons from groundwater via existing monitoring or remediation wells. Unlike pump-based systems, they require very little maintenance, set up easily, and have low power requirements.
