Personal exposure risks associated with hydrogen sulfide (H2S) historically have been a concern during the refining, storage and transportation of hydrocarbons. Recently, with the surge in production, transport and consumption of “tight oils,” the scrutiny imposed upon the risk of H2S exposure has been magnified. The growth in production of unconventional crude oil from the Bakken and Eagle Ford fields, coupled with a shortage of pipeline capacity, has forced producers to transport more crude to market using railroads, tanker trucks and barges. As the crude is handled more frequently and transported through populated communities, the risk potential for H2S exposure requires increas
