A large volume of oil-contaminated sand remains in the Kuwaiti deserts, causing threat to the groundwater and ecological system. The main aims of this research are to evaluate the situation of Kuwaiti oil lakes and identify the impact of contaminated soil on ecology and humans in Kuwait. This consists of two phases; the first phase summarises the results from field demonstrations and discusses the prospective of using different techniques for remediation of the oil-contaminated soil in Kuwait, while the second phase aims to compare and select the appropriate soil remediation techniques based on UN requirements. In this chapter, decision mechanism was carried out in compliance with the House of Quality (HOQ) analysis system. The total weighted score for each soil remediation method was determined to obtain the final decision.
