The THIOPAQ O&G biodesulfurization system uses nonhazardous, naturally occurring, and self-regulating bacteria to convert H2S in a produced gas stream to manageable solid elemental sulfur that can be used in a variety of agricultural applications or disposed of in a landfill. It thus addresses the twin goals of environmental stewardship and positive economics.
In general, the process removes H2S from low-, medium-, and high-pressure streams in direct treat operations. It can also be easily installed for indirect treating and runs downstream of amine, Claus, and membrane units for emissions cleanup and sulfur recovery. The THIOPAQ O&G system is able to produce treated gas that meets a typical H2S outlet specification of 4 ppm or less.
