“Oil Spill.” Haunting words in a midnight call deliver a gut-wrenching blow to Jesse Ford, Vice-President of Americo Oil and Gas Company.

The Desert Rose, a prized oil tanker in Lagos, Nigeria, has been sabotaged. Two people are brutally murdered. The uncontrollable spill releases millions of gallons of oil into the sea, leading to the closure of the vital Lagos oil export terminal, a crucial lifeline for the Nigerian economy.

Jesse is sent to Lagos to manage the disaster, investigate the cause and mitigate the damage. However, the company board of directors demands swift action from Jesse. Millions of dollars are lost daily from the environmental catastrophe.

Desperate to clean up the spill, Jesse reluctantly hires a mysterious French company that claims to have a revolutionary solution-a micro-organism called Denz that feeds on petroleum. However, doubts creep in about the effectiveness and potential dangers of Denz.

Now Jesse and his team race against the clock to stop Denz before it’s too late. The stakes are high. The future hangs in the balance, but is it too late to prevent irreversible damage?”
