Hydrogen sulfide H2S Contingency Plans

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is an extremely toxic gas that can be encountered in many oil and gas producing formations and can be present at drilling locations, producing wells, tank batteries, production facilities, gas plants, etc. NTG Environmental prepares H2S contingency plans for oil and gas operators that outline actions to take for alerting and protecting the public within a specified area of exposure prior to an intentional release or after an accidental release of H2S. These plans take into account conditions that may be present in given areas of potential exposure and provide contact information for potentially affected individuals and response actions.

Health and Safety Manual Development

NTG Environmental develops and maintains safety programs and manual incorporating client-specific policies, procedures, and practices to recognize and mitigate occupational health and safety hazards. Some of the safety program elements include:

 

  • Permit to Work
  • NORM Programs
  • Behavior Based Safety
  • Training Requirements
  • Hydrogen Sulfide Awareness
  • Personal Protection Equipment
  • Hazard Identification Procedures
  • Energy Isolation

Case Studies

Guadalupe County, TX

Due to the known high concentration of sour gas and the close proximity of residences in Darst Creek Field, NTG Environmental performed a door-to-door notification visit at all dwellings within the area of exposure for a Client’s oil and gas operations as part of an H2S Contingency Plan. As a result, this public relations effort by the client was well received by the residents in the area.

Vinton, LA

Using licensed NORM survey teams, NTG Environmental established a survey grid system encompassing inactive equipment and soils for a facility. The NORM survey results were summarized, mapped, and documented by submittal of a NORM Site Notification Form ­RPD-36 to the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality.
