Where is Condensates & NGL Sweetening used?
Condensates & NGL Sweetening
Natural Gasoline, NGL and Condensate are particularly valuable as commercial products and for petrochemical applications.
Sulfur compound impurities in these liquids are mainly mercaptans (RSH), hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and carbonyl sulphide (COS).
- To reduce total sulfur content, an Extractive Sulfur Removal process which eliminates H2S in a first step and extracts mercaptans (RSH) in a second step is an ideal solution to meet the minimum total sulfur specification.
- To meet stringent copper strip corrosive specifications, a sweetening step which converts acidic sulfur compounds into less aggressive disulfides will be an acceptable low investment alternative to pass the copper strip test and to protect downstream equipment.
