Water Soluble

Water Soluble H₂S scavenger

Product Description:

In the oil and gas industry, hydrogen sulfide (H₂S) is a common and dangerous gas that can be present in oil and gas reservoirs, production wells, and processing facilities. H₂S is corrosive, flammable, and toxic and poses a significant risk to workers and the environment. Therefore, removing H₂S from oil and gas streams is important before transportation and processing.

One way to remove H₂S is by using a water-soluble H₂S scavenger. A scavenger is a chemical substance that reacts with H₂S to form a non-toxic compound that can be easily separated from the oil and gas stream. Water-soluble scavengers are preferred because they can be easily injected into the water phase of the oil and gas stream and do not require additional surfactants or solvents to dissolve.

The choice of H₂S scavenger depends on several factors, including the concentration of H₂S in the oil and gas stream, the temperature and pressure of the system, and the potential for corrosion or fouling. Applying H₂S scavengers must also comply with local regulations and industry standards to ensure safe and effective use.


  • Increased Safety:
    Hydrogen sulfide is a toxic gas that can cause respiratory issues, headaches, and even death. The use of H₂S scavengers helps to eliminate or reduce the risks associated with H₂S exposure, leading to increased safety for workers and the environment.
  • Improved Equipment Performance:
    H₂S can cause corrosion and damage to equipment, leading to costly repairs and downtime. Using H₂S scavengers can help protect equipment and prolong its lifespan, improving equipment performance and reducing maintenance costs.
  • Increased Efficiency:
    Water-soluble H₂S scavengers can be injected into the production stream, allowing for continuous treatment and preventing H₂S buildup. This results in improved efficiency and reduced downtime due to equipment failures.
  • Compliance:
    The oil and gas industry is subject to various regulations and standards, including limits on H₂S emissions. Using H₂S scavengers can help companies meet regulatory requirements and avoid penalties.
  • Cost-Effective:
    Using H₂S scavengers is a cost-effective solution for managing H₂S, as they prevent the need for expensive equipment upgrades or shutdowns. Water-soluble H₂S scavengers can be easily transported and stored, reducing transportation costs and increasing accessibility.
