Hydrogen Sulfide is a toxic, colorless gas that is invisible, explosive, flammable, heavier than air and a leading cause of fatalities in the oil and gas and petrochemical industries. It is formed when organic material decomposes. At low concentrations, it has an offensive odor of rotten eggs. At high concentrations, it deadens your sense of smell. It is corrosive to metals having two active protons making it acidic in nature. It combines with iron to form iron sulfides which are often pyrophoric and can be the cause of fires in processing and storage equipment.

As we have been discussing petroleum refining processes and the various problems that are encountered during decontamination and shut-down preparations, we have taken side trips to talk of related subjects such as pyrophoric iron, degassing and other matters. One of these side discussions was about asphaltenes. Two other constituents of crude oil that have impact on petroleum refining operations are resins and polymers.

degassing-blog1 
“Degassing,” a term frequently used in the petroleum processing and production industries, is the process of evacuating hazardous vapors from the interior of processing vessels and piping.

 

These hazardous vapors are typically volatilized hydrocarbon gases and hydrogen sulfide, among others. The process of degassing does not include the removal of residual organic or inorganic solids or scales—only vapors.
