What is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S)?

The most critical gas purification service we provide for our clients is hydrogen sulfide (H2S) removal.

H2S, also called sour gas, is a flammable, highly corrosive, and colorless gas that occurs naturally within the environment. As crude oil and natural gas are extracted from the earth, it contains varying amounts of H2S.


  • >30ppm extended exposure is dangerous
  • >100ppm is immediately harmful
  • >1000ppm is deadly
  • >30ppm extended exposure is dangerous

The Need for Sour Gas Removal

There are strict regulations in place regarding acceptable H2S concentrations and flare rates because of the dangers high H2S concentrations pose to people and the environment.

In oil and gas applications, H2S and moisture also forms sulfuric acid which corrodes metals and causes downtime. Furthermore, it’s critical to bring wells to completion and product to market at the right time because of fluctuating energy prices, so having a streamlined gas purification process keeps investors happy.
