kevin costner, bp oil spill, ocean therapy solutions, gulfClose to two months have passed since we offered the techie details on Kevin Costner’s oil spill skimming contraptions (otherwise known as ‘liquid-liquid separation centrifuges’). Suffice it to say that each 2 metric ton device is able to process 200 gallons of contaminated ocean water each minute, which we can surely use right now in post-Horizon oil spill waters.

Manufactured by Ocean Therapy Solutions and parent company Blue Planet Solutions — both of which the actor founded and personally bankrolled – – we’ve all been hopeful that his gizmos will make a serious dent in what has been an ongoing environmental tragedy. The last we heard, Costner got the thumbs up in June to place 32 of his machines into oil-contaminated swaths of the Gulf of Mexico and now, we’ve just learned that he’s seeking business partners.

While attending ONS 2010 (the world’s main oil and energy industry panel in Stavanger, Norway) this week, he spoke about the benefits of “state of the art oil spill systems” and then took meetings with major Norwegian offshore oil industry representatives. His goal is to return to the US with a few key business partners that will help him to propel his technology forward.

If you’re curious how Costner’s centrifuge technology really works, here’s the inside scoop from one of his engineering consultants. On the other hand, if you want to master a convincing Norwegian accent, I’m afraid you’re on your own. (Better hop on a plane lickety-split and take an audio crash course like Rosetta Stone or Berlitz!)
