Air Cargo News. Dictionary browser? Full browser?Natural gas is considered sour if it contains significant amounts of H2S, generally 4 parts per million ppm or greater. High H2S concentrations in produced gas creates safety hazards for operations, increases corrosion and sulfide-stress-cracking risks, and results in an export gas of lower value. To minimize these factors, various H2S removal methods can be utilized.
There are multiple treatment strategies to remove H2S from produced gas. Operating conditions also influence the selection of treatment strategies and application locations. Solid scavengers are very effective in stripping H2S from gas streams down to trace levels. However, they require little OPEX, are predictable in their removal rates, generally do not require additional chemicals, and generally do not impact downstream processes or overboard water. These systems comprise of a fixed bed filled with absorbent material of metal oxides such as zinc, copper, iron, or magnesium.
These beds take up significant space and require two trains to maintain operation during servicing. The media is non-regenerative and requires significant time and labor to charge with fresh media. Confined space entry and potentially pyrophoric waste create unwanted operations hazards.
These systems are very efficient in removing almost all the H2S from a gas stream, are highly reliable, and very predictable in their removal rates and change cycles. See Figure 1 for a typical metal oxide medal bed design.
Regenerative solid beds, also known as molecular sieves, remove H2S by adsorption instead of chemical reaction. They are comprised of aluminosilcate crystalline polymers zeoliteswhich strip out polar or polarizable compounds. While this includes H2S, molecular sieves will also remove CO2, water, methanol, mercaptanes and sulfides, ammonia, mercury, and aromatics to trace levels.
H2S is preferentially removed over CO2 and allows for selective removal from streams containing both.
Highly effective at removing contaminants to trace levels, the zeolites can be regenerated using a regeneration gas stream; this gas stream must then be treated to remove the sulfur species. This can be problematic as it requires dealing with a H2S-rich gas stream.
Large vessel size, limited capacity, and the need for parallel trains for regeneration during service can increase CAPEX and space requirements. Additionally, dealing with sulfur waste creates potential issues for both operations handling and OPEX considerations.
Figure 2 illustrates the molecular sieve removal and regeneration process. Figure 3 illustrates the range of sizes and shapes molecular sieve media can be formed into. Liquid scavengers generally take up less space and weight than solid scavengers, but are significantly less efficient. OPEX is increased compared to solid scavengers, but liquid scavengers offer more options for retrofitting an existing facility. Liquid scavengers fall into two categories: regenerative and non-regenerative.
Amine contactor towers are the most commonly used method of gas sweetening in the industry. H2S preferentially reacts, but CO2 may also react with the amine.Oil and Gas Formation
The waste gas stream must be disposed of.Enormous odour nuisance is just the beginning. H2S or hydrogen sulphide may cause health defects in humans, like severe mucosal irritations. The canal system also falls victim to hydrogen sulphide again and again. If the hydrogen sulphide is not stopped betimes, the gas causes corrosion and damage on the concrete of the site.
This leads to expensive reconstruction and prospecting work in the millions. Using the H2S monitoring by Microtronics, you can detect an over-concentration of H2S early and can counteract the damages preventive.

Water injection for enhanced oil recovery always carries some risk of reservoir souring, whether produced water or sea water is injected. Various mitigation strategies can be employed to reduce this risk, including nitrate injection, low salinity LoSal sea water injection, and the use of sulfate removal units SRUs. Various remediation strategies also exist for dealing with soured production, including catalyst scavenger beds, precipitator chemicals, amine units, and liquid scavenger chemicals.
Mitigation, remediation, or a combination may be necessary to achieve export and safety specifications. Operating conditions will also influence the selection of treatment strategies and ultimate application locations. Solid scavengers are very effective in stripping H2S from gas streams down to trace levels; however, they require significant capital expenditure, and are often labor intensive during media change out.
They generally have low OPEX, are predictable in their removal rates, usually do not require additional chemicals, and generally do not impact downstream processes or overboard water. As the spent waste of the non-regenerative solid options require removal or disposal, this can be impractical for offshore applications. The large footprint and limited capacity of regenerative solid options, combined with the production of a concentrated sour waste gas stream during regeneration, also make them less practical for offshore use.
Liquid scavengers, in general, take up less space and weight than solid scavengers, but are significantly less efficient at removing the H2S from the gas stream; the OPEX is significantly higher compared to solid scavengers. Liquid scavengers offer more options for retrofitting H2S scavenging to an existing facility.
Possible liquid scavenging options include, but are not limited to the following:. Triazine, the most commonly used liquid H2S scavenger, is a heterocyclic structure similar to cyclohexane, but with three carbon atoms replaced by nitrogen atoms. Three variations of triazine exist, based on the location of the substitution of nitrogen atoms, as shown in Figure 1. Further variations involving substitutions of the hydrogen atoms with other functional groups are used in various industries.
In direct-injection applications, the triazine is sprayed directly into the gas or mixed fluid stream, usually with an atomizing quill. Removal rate is dependent upon the H2S dissolution into the triazine solution, rather than the reaction rate.
This method is excellent for removing H2S when there is good annular-mist flow and sufficient time to react. Most suppliers recommend a minimum of 15 — 20 seconds of contact time with the product for best results. In order for direct injection to be effective, careful consideration of injection location and product selection must be used.
In a contactor tower, the feed gas is bubbled through a tower filled with triazine. As the gas bubbles up through the liquid, gas dissolves into the triazine and H2S is removed. The limiting factors in this application are the surface area of the bubble, the concentration of the solution, and bubble path time contact time.
Finer bubbles give a better reaction rate, but they can produce unwanted foaming. This application is not appropriate for high gas flow rates.
As a result, far less chemical is used and a significant reduction in OPEX can be realized. However, the contactor tower and chemical storage take up significant space and weight, making them less practical for offshore application. One mole of triazine reacts with two moles of H2S to form dithiazine, the main byproduct.
An intermediate product is formed, but rarely seen. The reaction is shown in Figure 3. The R-groups that are released during the two-step reaction vary by the supplier, and can be tailored for solubility. Continued reaction can result in the formation of an insoluble trithiane product. Reacted triazine byproducts are readily biodegradable and relatively non-toxic.Crude oil production, pipelines, terminals, barges and refineries experience the release of H2S.
Increasing government regulations and finished product specification as well as concern for internal corrosion control is requiring the removal of H2S from the crude oil. Recent studies have demonstrated that the use of amine or triazine sulfide scavengers to control sulfide can result in the formation of monoethanolamine MEA triazines which have shown to be very problematic and corrosive to refineries.
However, concerns regarding the use of amine-based H2S scavenging compounds and the effects these formulations have during the processing of treated crude oils have recently surfaced. Crude unit corrosion and fouling in overhead systems and tower trays are attributed to the use ofamine-based H2S scavengers. Of the chemical families of nitrogen based H2S scavengers, triazine chemistry is most often employed to abate H2S from crude oil and as such the use of triazine chemistry is ubiquitous throughout the Petroleum and Refining Industry.

Find out more.H2S scavengers are widely used in hydrocarbon processing facilities to maintain plant worker's safety and productivity and eliminate their odor emissions.
These specialized chemicals react selectively with and remove H2S to help meet product and process specifications. ProSweet H 2 S scavenger solutions include a variety of different products to address water-related odor problems arising from the release of hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, ammonia, amines, volatile organics, and general nuisance odors.
For the control of odors due to reduced sulfur compounds such as H 2 S and mercaptans, ProSweet H 2 S scavenger solutions include SUEZ proprietary non-amine based organic sulfide scavengers and inhibitors. They are non-toxic, non-corrosive and easy to apply liquid blends. Their application does not generate sludge or result in a system pH change.
SUEZ's H 2 S scavengers have successfully been used in many different application areas for odor control. Here are some examples:. Hydrogen sulfide is produced because of the microbial breakdown of organic materials in the absence of oxygen. H 2 S generation can occur in petroleum reservoirs, wastewater treatment plants, and sewers to name a few. H 2 S is a colorless and deadly gas present in crude oil and many intermediate petroleum products. As a result, and in many cases, mandatory 10 ppm H 2 S vapor space specifications have been added to these products.
The direct introduction of hydrogen sulfide and other reduced sulfur compounds such as mercaptans generated from inorganic and organic reactions in petrochemical plants, paper mills, steel mills, and other industrial processes into process water and wastewater streams.
In wastewater applications, a primary contributor to hydrogen sulfide is the biochemical reduction of inorganic sulfur compounds to sulfide by sulfate-reducing bacteria SRB under anaerobic or low dissolved oxygen conditions.
The rate by which H 2 S is generated depends upon the concentration of organics, sulfate, and dissolved oxygen in the water and environmental factors such as pH and temperature.

Contact Us.Use of these scavengers ensures safer operations with reduced environmental, regulatory, and operational concerns at refineries, storage tank facilities, terminals, and in-transport vessels. Our technology and expertise enable you to meet every sulfur management need from LPG to asphalt or any product in between.
One refinery had extreme fuel H2S levels from the vacuum tower. That process change reduced H2S levels by more than 8, ppm, saving significant additive cost. Many customers have alerted us about high levels of H2S in their finished asphalt product, which can create a health hazard for workers loading the asphalt into transportation equipment.
In some situations, environmental and odor concerns have made H2S treatment a mandatory procedure for asphalt operations. As heavier crude oils are processed, we anticipate H2S problems to grow.
SULFIX H2S scavengers help to increase worker safety and confirm compliance with global environmental regulations by reducing dangerous levels of hydrogen sulfide in asphalt.
Hydrogen sulfide is also a concern in fuel terminals where chemical binders, such as polyphosphoric acid PPAare added to enhance the value of the asphalt product. While loading asphalt, a refiner was repeatedly confronted with high hydrogen sulfide H2S concentrations that exceeded the recommended exposure limit of 10 ppm, set by the National Inst Featured Capabilities.
