H2S Service PDF Print E-mail

Today’s technology allows us to drill deeper in remote areas around the world for oil, gas, and geothermal energy. Unfortunately advanced technology and secondary recovery methods also increase the risk of encountering unsafe working environments, in particular H2S gas. Pandu has been providing our clients with durable, reliable, and cost effective equipment and service solutions to support your operation safely and minimize the related risks.

Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is an invisible but highly toxic gas. It is a product formed by the decomposition of organic matter in the presence of bacteria. Also called sour gas or stink gas, H2S is generally recognized by its rotten egg odor. The human nose can normally detect the smell even at a low concentration level, however at higher levels, it quickly paralyzes the olfactory nerves and the nose’s ability to smell is deadened. At a concentration level of 1000 ppm and above, the effect of H2S can be immediately lethal.
