Kevin Costner to the Rescue in the Gulf of Mexico

BP has hired Ocean Therapy Solutions to provide the centrifuge technologies that Kevin Costner has been touting to help skim off the oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico from the Deepwater Horizon well.

The idea is that by using barges mounted with centrifuges to separate the oil from water, skimmers can operate more efficiently with fewer trips back to the dock to empty the skimmings they have collected.

Does it help? Or is it just a PR move? I don't know.
