H2S/Total Sulfur analyzers for Natural Gas pipeline integrity monitoring. During the extraction and processing of raw Natural Gas, midstream companies are required to track the level of Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and Total Sulfur (TS). Accurate analysis of H2S in Natural Gas is of high importance to reach natural gas standard and to avoid equipment corrosion, as well as the decrease of heating values.
Mercaptans or THT are added to natural gas to make it smell and to make it detectable by the human nose (odorization process and odorization control in pipes).
energyMEDOR ppm: 30 years’ experience.The compounds usually used to odorize natural gas vary from one country to another but are usually:
Ter Buthyl Mercaptan (TBM)
Analyze H2S and mercaptans concentration in natural gas (ppm).
The aim : analyze H2S and mercaptans concentration in natural gas (ppm). These mercaptans are added to natural gas to make it smell to make it detectable by the human nose (odorization process and odorization control in pipes) : energyMEDOR ppm / 30 years’ experience. The compounds usually used to odorize natural gas vary from one country to another but are usually : Ter Buthyl Mercaptan (TBM) TetraHydroTiophene (THT) MethylEthylSulfide (MES).
To ensure product quality and process optimization, the determination of elemental impurities is crucial for control labs in refineries and in the production of alternative fuels. Analytik Jena`s versatile solutions help you comply with international regulations and improve analysis of petroleum products, natural gas and alternative fuels.

Precise measurement of natural gas requires high accuracy, low pressure drop and direct mass flow reading—all the hallmarks of Sierra’s immersible thermal, mass vortex and thermal mass flow controllers. Our mass flow controllers are ideal for natural gas flow measurement with 100:1 turndown and no moving parts, providing a robust MFC solution. Our natural gas flow measurement instruments can also handle liquefied natural gas (LNG) via our cryogenic mass vortex meters.
Assure accurate and repeatable gas, liquid and steam measurement throughout the oil patch, from monitoring injection at the wellhead and measuring natural gas for heaters and boilers to measuring the various process gases at the refinery or flared in the field. Our volumetric vortex flow meters, multivariable mass vortex flow meters, ultrasonic flow meters and thermal mass flow meters are used for precision measurement in the oil and gas industry.
A custom report program for characterizing natural gas and its condensates. Chromperfect Natural Gas Reporter estimates two values of importance to the industry: the heating value of gases, and the Reid vapor pressure of liquids.
Natural gas pipeline owners require improved routine monitoring of pipelines for safety, economic and regulatory reasons. Leaking natural gas can cause explosions leading to loss of life and property. Loss of product through undetected leaks dramatically reduces a pipeline operator’s profitability.
The natural gas is a significant source of ingres s of mercury in the environment. The typical mercury concentration in natural gas may vary from 0.01 to 200 μ g/m3 . Mercury, being present in hydrocarbon gas, initiates corrosion of pipelines and catalyst poiso ning during gas transportation and processing, and these effects have serious implications for the gas-processing industry.
Many industries involve the usage or dismissal of gases as part of its daily routines. Leaks of Green House Gases (GHG) from process and transport systems in these industries contribute to global warming, expose employees to health hazards and risk of explosion, and represent enormous economic losses for the companies involved. “EyeCGas” – Opgal’s innovative infrared gas imaging camera enables the quick and safe detection and visualization of these gasses.
The presence of moisture in high-pressure natural gas from production wells causes pipelines and associated valves to freeze. High moisture content also leads to the formation of hydrates of the liquid hydrocarbons present, thus causing further difficulties. The moisture content of the gas also adversely affects the calorific value of the gas, thus lowering the quality and value of the product. Moisture is therefore measured at the point of extraction, at export stations, at gas storage locations and in the...
Natural gas - an ideal energy: Natural gas is versatile, economical and environmentally friendly. Natural gas passes through underground pipelines from the sources to the distribution centers. All pipelines, transfer stations and other facilities have to be inspected regularly and conscientiously.
The sour (H2S) content of hydrocarbon fields worldwide is increasing, and many natural gas fields have very high H2S – sometimes in excess of 50%. H2S is extremely dangerous because, although people can smell it at low levels (about 5 ppb) it does not smell much worse at the exposure limit value of 10 ppm or at potentially fatal levels in excess of 100 ppm. Therefore smell is an unreliable means of determining dangerous levels. Existing H2S point sensors are maintenance intensive, slow to respond and...
