Hydrogen Sulfide -H2S
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), also known as sour gas, is an extremely toxic and flammable gas that can be encountered in both downstream and upstream sectors of the Oil and Gas industry. At concentrations higher than 100 ppm H2S is considered as Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health (IDLH) and can cause an array of effects, from eye and throat irritation, to pulmonary edema.
All personnel who work in a potentially IDLH area are required to attend H2S awareness training before commencing onsite
lots of people have died due to the exposure of H2S toxic gas in oil and gas field, because of the lack of knowledge. So it is important to know the hazards and prevention method of the H2S toxic gas.
In the event of an uncontrolled release of H2S, proper training can make the difference between life and death. Save your life before anything could go wrong.
