The Environmental Technologies team worked with Vortex Environmental Technologies to test its technology which reduces the concentration levels of Hydrogen Sulfide (a highly toxic gas) commonly formed in produced waters during oil and gas operations.
The various forms of Sulphur present in the water interact with Vortex’s proprietary technology, converting them to a solid (crystallized) state. This renders the Sulphur unavailable for conversion into Hydrogen Sulfide. These crystals are then removed using a low-cost filtration system.
Here’s what the system looks like. Take our quiz to test your skills at matching parts of the system with their description.
1. This device shows the water pressure as it flows through the system.
2. This device isolates the Sulphur from the feed water (the contaminated water being tested).
3. This device pops open in the event that the air pressure reaches an unsafe level.
