Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and its associated hazards are well known in the oil and gas production and refining industries. Legislation has been in place for years, imposing strict regulations on H2S levels of hydrocarbon streams in pipelines, and in storage and shipping containers and in marine fuels. A variety of chemical scavengers are available to reduce both the concentration and corresponding hazards of H2S in produced water, produced gas, crude oil and refined products. There are several pros and cons for the most common chemistries used to scavenge H2S. The associated effectiveness and the potential downstream impacts of these scavengers will be explored here. Guidelines will be presente
