Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has signed a sulfur recovery technology licensor agreement with Paqell, a joint venture between Shell Global Solutions and Paques BV, for use of its THIOPAQ O&G (oil and gas) technology in refineries and gas treating facilities across the globe. This agreement positions Jacobs as the only gas treating and sulfur recovery licensing company to license THIOPAQ O&G to low capacity sulfur facility owners, which eliminates the chemical waste produced by alternative technologies.
THIOPAQ O&G is a biological process which integrates gas purification with sulfur recovery in a single unit, resulting in high sulfur recovery levels at reduced installation and operating costs. This process involves sulfur components, such as mercaptans (R-SH) and hydrogen sulfides (H2S), being removed from a gas stream and converting them into biologically formed sulfur. Expanding Jacobs’ Comprimo® Sulfur Solutions technology, this process is becoming increasingly important to the industry as it looks for ways to reduce chemical waste, which poses both environmental and safety hazards.
“Refining and gas treating facility owners and operators require reliable technology that delivers low CAPEX and OPEX, provides high sulfur recovery efficiency, and minimises environmental impact,” said Jacobs Mining & Minerals and Specialty Chemicals Senior Vice President and General Manager Andrew Berryman.
