Amine Detection with Lonestar Amine Detection with LonestarA variety of amines may be found in oil and gas, both as constituents and as by-products of processes to remove H2S and/or CO2. Lonestar can detect the presence of amines in both crude oil and water backgrounds, allowing in-situ monitoring of concentrations throughout the treatment process.

Analysis of Scavengers for Sulfide (H2S) Removal from Crude Oil Analysis of Scavengers for Sulfide (H2S) Removal from Crude OilTriazine compounds are commonly used as scavenger chemicals to remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from crude oil, in a process sometimes called "stripping".  These triazine-based additives are often present in excess of the levels required to remove the H2S. The excess triazine, together with the by-products of the scavenging reaction with H2S, may cause corrosion and fouling in downstream equipment. Consequently, there is value in petroleum processors being able to quickly measure excess concentration of scavenger before custody transfer.
