Baker Hughes Develops Service to Reduce SOX

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/1/2010, Location: North America

Baker Hughes has developed additives specially designed to reduce sulfur oxide (SOX) emissions from refinery flaring operations. Baker Petrolite SULFIX additives reduce SOX air pollution that is created when hazardous hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is burned.

This helps U.S. refiners meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Petroleum Refineries, Subparts J and Ja, 40 CFR 60.100, which limits the permissible H2S in gas burned in a flare to 160 parts per million (ppm) on a rolling three-hour average.

Refineries produce SOX emissions when H2S-laden gases are flared. This combustion process converts H2S to SOX. Now refineries can quickly reduce SOX emissions by treating the flare gas with Baker Petrolite SULFIX additives to reduce the amount of H2S it contains and avoid noncompliance issues without major capital investment. Baker Hughes provides comprehensive services for effective control of flare gas H2S levels to help refiners select suitable additives, use the correct injection system equipment and design, and implement an appropriate monitoring program.

“Baker Hughes has successfully applied SULFIX additives and helped refinery customers reduce SOX emissions to comply with environmental regulations,” notes Jerry Basconi, vice president and general manager, industrial services of Baker Hughes. “SULFIX products for flare gas reduce air pollution from SOX and H2S, improving air quality and environmental compliance.”
