Innospec’s Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Scavengers helping Oil & Gas customers scavenge harmful sour gas in producing wells, refinery processes and refined products, such as asphalt, fuel oil and finished fuels
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a colorless, highly toxic and corrosive substance gas that is naturally occurring in crude oil and commonly produced as a by-product in oilfield production applications and refinery processes. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), H2S is immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH) at a concentration of 100 ppm.
To help mitigate the human and environmental dangers posed by H2S, Innospec offers its TORRENT® Static Mixer for producing wells to increase the efficiency of scavenger treatment and its SulfurPurgeTM line of specialty H2S scavengers for crude oils, refinery intermediates, residual oils and finished fuel products.
Scavenger selection, proper application of the scavenger and a thorough understanding of system dynamics such as – field temperature, mixing capabilities and residence time in storage, are all critical factors in the design of a program.
As the world’s fuel additive leader, Innospec offers the technical support, application expertise, mechanical and scavenger solutions needed for a successful H2S treatment program.
