Your Challenges

Mercury is a naturally occurring impurity in hydrocarbons and some of the most heavily contaminated areas are in South East Asia.

The presence of mercury causes a number of issues for oil and gas producers including:

  • Corrosion (via amalgamation with mercury)
  • Poisoning of catalysts
  • Problems meeting product & pipeline specifications
  • Contamination of equipment & processes
  • Environmental & health effects
