Title: Process screening and selection for refinery gas processing

Abstract

Due to presence of sulfur in the petroleum crude, oil refining inherently involves sour gas treating to remove hydrogen sulfide (H/sub 2/S) formed during oil processing. Depending on the source of sour gas within the refinery, organic sulfur compounds such as carbonyl sulfide (COS), carbon disulfide (CS/sub 2/) and mercaptans (RSH) are often present and usually must also be removed. Refinery hydrogen production usually involves CO/sub 2/ removal and feed desulfurization. Presence of nitrogen in the crude results in the formation of ammonia during oil processing which is usually removed by water-wash as a pretreatment step, prior to acid gas removal.
