Wah, Wah- Panhandle Gas Producers Crying Because Injection Well With Too-High H2S Leveis Might be Shut Down

20 August 2007 at 5:48:04 PM

First, before I excerpt part of this. Texas Railroad Commission, DO YOUR JOB and don't pander to these guys. The Sneed Injection Well isn't supposed to be POLLUTING THE AIR!!!!!

On Thursday, about eighty gas producers and their purchaser, DCP midstream , met to talk about the possible shutdown of an injection well and the big impact that would have around the Texas Panhandle.

Pronews7 was the only news crew at the meeting.

The problem began when gas wells around the Sneed Injection Well claimed they were seeing higher H2S levels.

Sneed works to remove  H2S  from gas so that it can be processed. The H2S removed is then released into the ground. Now the  Railroad Commission  is questioning the integrity of Sneed.

The Railroad Commission will hold a hearing to decide if Sneed should be shut down for two years while a Sulfur Recovery Unit is built in order to make sure the H2S does not affect nearby wells.

But shutting Sneed down temporarily causes moreproblems for others.

"You cut your income by 80 percent and see how well you do," said Bart Boren, Idependent Producer.

So, you're one of the gas producers, eh? At a meeting that sure didn't seem unbiased. Maybe YOU should go look at what the definition of H2S is, From Manning Safety Sources.

"What is hydrogen sulfide (H2S)?
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is a colorless gas that smells like rotten eggs (from the sulphur). Often referred to as "sewer gas," (known by other names that include "sulfane", "sulfur hydride", d"ihydrogen monosulfide", "sulfurated hydrogen", "sewer gas" and "stink damp"), hydrogen sulfide is highly poisonous. Usually, the poisoning caused by hydrogen sulfide is though inhalation and has a toxicity similar to cyanide. It is found in petroleum and natural gas and is sometimes present in ground water. Natural gas can contain up to 28% hydrogen sulfide gas and may be considered an air pollutant when found near a natural gas production area or refinery.

Low Levels of H2S
The odor or hydrogen sulfide gas can be perceived at levels as low as 10 ppb (parts per billion). At levels of 50-100 ppm (parts per million), it may cause the human sense of smell to fail. Low levels can cause eye irritation, dizziness, coughing, and headache.

High levels of H2S
At high exposures (usually greater than 300 ppm), H2S has the amazing effect of causing the nose to stop perceiving its smell after a few inhalations, which may lead to the inhalation of a toxic or fatal dose (which can occur at 600 ppm). At high levels, hydrogen sulfide gas may paralyze the lungs, meaning that the victim may then be unable to escape from the toxic gas without assistance.

Deaths are not uncommon when people enter poorly ventilated spaces such as deep wells, underground tanks or sewer systems. Since H2S gas is heavier than air, its concentration is highest near the bottom of enclosed spaces."

Gee. I'd say that if there was NO FEAR about the ill effects of H2S, then the RRC wouldn't be thinking about SHUTTING THE INJECTION WELL DOWN. And WHY might they be concerned? Because that stuff can get into BOTH the air AND water.
