New Technology CLEARs the Way in Alberta

AMGAS’ innovative CLEAR Process uses specialized Technology for Water Reuse in Unconventional Production

Calgary, Alberta (September 30, 2014) AMGAS Services Inc (AMGAS) launches CLEAR, a chemical free technology used to remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from sour crude oil, condensate and water. AMGAS is exhibiting at the Unconventional Resource Conference in Calgary and representatives from the company will be on hand at booth 512.

With dramatic increases in unconventional shale and oil sands production across Canada, access to and use of fresh water is becoming more and more difficult. This is especially true in areas where water disposal and fresh water restrictions have increased significantly over the last few years. AMGAS CLEAR introduces a chemical free sweetening process that can be used on sour water for either disposal or reuse in well servicing and production applications.

“AMGAS designed the CLEAR process to provide a chemical free way to treat sour oil in certain applications, however the process has really taken hold in areas where treating sour water is just as important”, says Sheldon McKee, Director of Business & Product Development for AMGAS. “CLEAR has shown it can reduce disposal and operational costs by as much as 50% ”. 

The AMGAS CLEAR process allows for H2S removal without introducing any chemical into the produced fluid thereby leaving no converted sulphides after treatment. The process was designed to prevent chemical overtreatment or under-treatment in sweetening operations but can be even more important when treating sour water that will be reused in oil sands or fracking operations. 

“We saw the amount of cost going into chemically treating sour oil”, says McKee. “Developing new ideas to tackle these old problems is what AMGAS has been working on since the company was founded over 25 years ago.”

In 2012 the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) released, ‘CAPP Hydraulic Fracturing Practice: Water Sourcing, Measurement and Reuse’, outline guiding principles for operational practices. One of the main guidelines mandates continued advancement, collaboration and communication of technologies and best practices to reduce environmental risk. CLEAR is the outcome of initiatives like this to improve water reuse and disposal.

New Technology CLEARs the Way in Texas

AMGAS’ innovative CLEAR Process uses specialized Technology for Water Reuse in Unconventional Production

San Antonio, Texas (September 15, 2014) AMGAS Services Inc (AMGAS) launches CLEAR, a chemical free technology used to remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from sour crude oil, condensate and water. AMGAS is exhibiting at the DUG Eagle Ford Conference in San Antonio Texas, September 15-17, 2014 and representatives from the company will be on hand at booth 2085.

With dramatic increases in unconventional shale production across the United States, access to and use of fresh water is becoming more and more difficult. This is especially true in areas such as the Eagle Ford in Texas where water disposal and fresh water restrictions have increased significantly over the last few years. AMGAS CLEAR introduces a chemical free sweetening process that can be used on sour water for either disposal or reuse in well servicing and production applications.

Press Release: Ready For Action

Ready for Action

AMGAS unveils “Ready Service” a self-contained Mobile H2S and Emission Control service adapted from Shutdown and Turnaround Operations at the Fort McMurray Oil Sands Trade Show

Fort McMurray, AB (September 8, 2014) Gearing up for Shutdowns season AMGAS Service Inc (AMGAS) delivers Ready Service, a mobile and fully self-contained H2S and other noxious emissions treatment service requiring no external power source, to the Northern Alberta oil patch. Ready Service takes AMGAS expertise in the service they have provided for years in turnaround applications and adapted it for day-to-day plant operations.

Ready Service utilizes a patented technology that is versatile with various applications from pressure bleed downs to vacuum truck venting. The service provides all in one emission control and management of fluid treatment for continuous plant maintenance and day-to-day emission control. AMGAS operates at the intersection of service, chemical and equipment and Ready Service maintains the same standards adding additional mobility and accessibility. AMGAS will be exhibiting at the Oil Sands Trade Show in Fort McMurray September 9-10 in Hall A at booth 1208 to showcase the technology.

 “The most important considerations during shutdowns and turnarounds when H2S is present are safety, accessibility, cost and limiting downtime,” says Steve Martinson General Manager of AMGAS. “Ready Service is designed to meet all these needs maintaining the highest level of safety demanded by industry leaders.”

Through development of a mobile, versatile and self-sufficient platform, AMGAS has created a new way to provide flexible pricing options for H2S and emission control for companies. Ready Service provides chemical optimization, waste reduction, rapid deployment and withdrawal designed to meet the challenging demands of plant shutdowns and ongoing maintenance.

Sour fluids and vapors present during shutdowns and turnarounds lead to escalating costs and increased downtime. Ready Service is a turnkey solution that is highly accessible and mobile using innovative technology and processes to enhance onsite plant treatment while ensuring worker safety.

“We see that mobilization time is so important during turnover operations and our clients need us to be ready now for operations onsite,” says Martinson. “Ready Service mobilizes our full service, 24 hours, 365 days a year expert services and allows for day-to-day service outside the turnaround season if needed.”

Press Release: Caught in the ACT

Caught in the ACT

New Amgas Capture Technology (ACT) eliminates harmful emissions during Shutdown and Turnarounds 

Fort McMurray, AB (February 2014) AMGAS Services Inc (AMGAS) launches the AMGAS Capture Technology (ACT) line of products and services to mitigate the dangers of BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene and Xylenes) and hydrocarbon emissions during shutdowns and turnarounds. With new information on the dangers of BTEX and hydrocarbon exposure to worker’s long-term and short-term health, the need to control these emissions have never been more important.

Functioning as an additional level of protection for personnel, the ACT product line joins AMGAS’s full service program to safely control hazardous emissions. BTEX and other Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) are almost always present in turnaround operations, even more common than the presence of Hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Large-scale emission control projects demand high volume BTEX and noxious odor control. The technology used in ACT products and services have the capacity to meet this demand while remaining reliable and a cost effective addition to more standard H2S removal services.

“ACT is in direct response to our client needs,” says Steve Martinson, General Manager at AMGAS. “We are fortunate that our in-house research and development department has a track record of creating innovative technologies like ACT so we can better provide solutions for our clients. ACT covers all the bases so workers know their health and safety are not being compromised”

Treating H2S during shutdowns and turnarounds to mitigate risks is the foundation of AMGAS’s business. AMGAS treats sour oil and gas at all stages of the shutdown and turnaround process. Similar to H2S, BTEX, hydrocarbon and other VOC’s can be naturally occurring and also created during production. The new technology is an enhancement of AMGAS expertise to treat BTEX emissions to increase safety, cut downtime and decrease costs.

“We are excited to add ACT to the list of service profiles for turnarounds and shutdowns,” says Martinson. “The technology has a bright future. We know down the road ACT will be a major player in all our service lines.”

AMGAS offers a wide range of services, including H2S and BTEX removal and control measures aimed at mitigating the dangers associated with processing sour oil and natural gas. AMGAS offers truck loading, fluid treatment and tank venting, which are all serviced by trained professionals.
