COMPACT CATALYTIC REACTOR CONTROLS VENT ODORS FROM OIL FIELD
Keith Eddington BP Exploration Welton, U.K. Peter Carnell ICI Katalco Cleveland, U.K. Compact fixed-bed reactors can control H2S emissions from hydrocarbon vent gases. Once installed there is no operating requirement other than routine analysis. This type of reactor is now in service on oil platforms in the North Sea and in the U.S. The design was first tested in the Welton oil field, located in Lincolnshire, U.K.
