Accurate rate-based modeling of acid gas and mercaptan removal using hybrid solvents

Badhwar, A., Cristancho, D., Dowdle, J., Ortiz-Vega, D., The Dow Chemical Company

Prediction of mercaptan removal from natural gas streams with liquid solvents presents significant challenges. Using an extensive experimental data collection campaign and recently improved thermodynamic models, an innovative solution has overcome these challenges and developed a rate-based model to accurately predict mercaptan removal performance.
