On 2 November, we attended the Brownfield Briefing Awards where we picked up a joint award with Ogreen for the remediation of a crude oil spill which was judged to be the winner of the Best International Project, 2023.

Due to civil and political unrest in Peru, especially in the Amazonian regions, the national oil infrastructure has been vandalized. In North Peru, the ONP pipeline was cut, causing a crude oil spill that stretched more than 1,600 meters from the break, covering 26,445 square meters and impacting 3,282 cubic meters of a channel connecting to the Maranon River. The impacted area is of local importance for two indigenous Amazonian tribes, San Juan de Mojarayacu and Santa Ana.


Peru before & after

Geo2 were approached to help design a solution by Ogreen, an in-country team who specialise in spill response and logistics. Peru has minimal experience in treating environmental issues and generally resorts to landfill disposal, but in an environment where the nearest landfill is over 1,000km away partnering with Geo2 provided a more cost-effective option to treat wastewater and material.

“We have worked incredibly hard to build Geo2 from the bottom up. Between senior management and our team of staff, we are proud of the reputation we have built over the past twenty years. We have worked hard at being the best at what we do, implementing sustainable remediation practices to transform brownfield sites into viable spaces, promoting urban renewal and creating a positive economic impact. It was also fantastic to have the opportunity to help a small village in Peru, providing our skill and expertise to help them clean up a massive oil spill and we look forward to more of these opportunities in the future.”
