International Dredging Review

Nalco (NYSE:NLC) confirmed today it is providing oil dispersants and support to BP and the responders dealing with the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The company will continue to provide these dispersants as requested for as long as responders have the need.

“To date sales related to these dispersants have not had a material financial impact on our company” Nalco Chairman and CEO Erik Fyrwald. “But it is impossible to predict at this time how long this incident will last or the magnitude of the overall response needed.”

“Our suppliers have shown us great support in getting us the raw materials we need” Fyrwald added. “This has really been an industry-wide effort to limit the impacts of the spill. We all are committed to helping the people and environment of the Gulf Coast recover as rapidly as possible.”

Nalco provides polymers for dredged material treatment in addition to other water treatment products.
