The field's contractor, GSP will use Directa’s Grafysorber, a graphene-based oil pollution treatment which is sustainably produced, non-flammable and reusable and allows the recovery of absorbed hydrocarbons.
In a statement, Directa said appraisal of the Trident gas field, with potential reserves exceeding 30bn cubic metres of gas, is a complex deep-water project and can open up new and significant offshore opportunities for the company's environmental services offering.
“The contract is the latest collaboration with our partners GSP and is our first offshore, deep water contract. It will provide valuable experience to help accelerate the growth of our graphene-based decontamination services business in the oil and gas space,” Directa's chief executive and founder Giulio Cesareo said in a release.
“It is also a demonstration of our strategy to make our own future less dependent on others by capturing the maximum value from the supply chains we enter, rather than simply supplying the key ingredients. Our technology can be applied in many different areas and we will continue to use our deep scientific knowledge to identify sector opportunities,” he added.
