About Amine Plants
Amine Plants, also known as gas sweetening or acid gas removal, refer to a process that uses various alkanolamines (commonly referred to as amines) to remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) from natural gas streams.
Gases containing H2S and CO2 are commonly referred to as sour or acid gases. Sour gas is undesirable for several reasons.
- Harmful to health and sometimes deadly if in contact
- Extremely corrosive to pipelines
- Takes up space in pipelines which limits the amount of valuable gas transported
- Specifically CO2 can hamper processing plants due to freeze ups
Due to the reasons stated above, most pipelines require natural gas to adhere to “pipeline spec” of less than 4 ppm of H2S and no more than 2-3% of CO2. Prior to entering cryogenic processing plants, CO2 specifications can be as low as 50ppm.
