Course Summary

The development of oil, gas, and geothermal resources in a hydrogen sulfide ( H2S) environment can be hazardous unless adequate safety precautions are taken. H2S gas may be emitted from geothermal wells and power plants and from oil and gas wells, gas plants, and sweetening units during drilling, workover, production, injection, gathering, handling, storage, and transmission operations.

H2S gas is toxic to humans and very corrosive to metals, including high–strength steel. The best protection against H, S–related accidents is knowing where H2S environments are likely to be found and being well–informed about safe drilling and operating methods within them. It is to these ends that the present manual has been prepared.

Learning Objectives
