Introducing H2S scavengers during oil and gas production instigates the need for expert guidance on issues such as testing, safety and environmental impact.

Intertek Capcis
The use of H2S scavengers during petroleum production has steadily increased as oilfields continue to age and sour.

H2S scavengers provide a cost-effective alternative to amine treating or dry beds in order to meet sour service specifications for products and plants.

Used for the removal of H2S where amine treating is not practically or economically feasible, the introduction of H2S scavengers brings concerns about unforeseeable effects on processes, such as scaling due to increased alkalinity.

These issues have prompted the development of new H2S scavenger chemistries, generating a need for guidance on their application and performance.

Providing a full range of H2S scavenger services and comprehensive advice, Intertek CAPCIS is able to guide you through the procedure of H2S scavenger introduction and beyond.

We can evaluate H2S scavenger behaviour in all fluid phases - liquid hydrocarbon, water and gas - and perform extensive research and development into reservoir conditions.

Utilising atmospheric pressure test rigs, we can assess the performance of chemical treatments at lower partial pressures of H2S. Additionally, our autoclave facilities permit flexible testing of H2S scavengers at a wide range of pressures and temperatures.

Our experts can also evaluate the kinetics of H2S removal under specific conditions and the interaction of H2S scavengers with other aspects of processing operations.

Engaging our Total Quality Assurance services to address your H2S scavenger needs and resolve complications will equip you with up-to-date, dependable guidance that will add value to your business.

Working alongside oil and gas organisations for over three decades, our consultants possess world-class knowledge and are supported by cutting-edge laboratories and centres of excellence around the globe.
