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.
AMGAS is a Canadian corporation with offices across Western Canada, the US and in the Middle East and has been a leader in H2S treatment since the late 1980s.
