Sour gas amine treatment and sulfur recovery facilities are required for most integrated refineries that are treating high- or medium-sulfur crudes. Additionally, oil and gas fields that are producing sour crude oil and sour gas must be designed for those processes. As hydrocarbons produced from oil and gas wells become more and more sour, clean fuel regulations and environmental regulations become more stringent. However, different conditions exist for refineries and oil fields, so design engineers should consider all required surroundings, including environment regulations, utility availability, weather conditions, product transportation, etc. Accurate expectations for future policy and r
