H2S Removal Patent Issued for RevEnergy Technology
May 22, 2019
RevEnergy was born of the desire for more. Hydrogen sulfide occurs naturally in some petroleum reservoirs; others turn sour with the injection of water for enhanced recovery. Either way, sour crude must be stabilized before it can be transported or stored safely. Thus, H2S removal from crude oil is a constant concern to drilling operators, midstream companies and refineries.
However, as our founders experienced first-hand in their oilfield days, most H2S mitigation methods were less than ideal. Removal agents left additives that contaminated the crude. Other methods resulted in crude oil volume loss. They knew there had to be a better way, but up to that point, no one demanded a higher standard.
So, they created one. What started as a garage experiment in 2013 developed into a revolutionary method refined via several system prototypes over the past six years. The United States Patent and Trademark Office has now issued U.S. Patent No. 10,258,904, related to a system and method for removing H2S from hydrocarbon fluids.
The recently-issued patent contains 21 claims. And that’s just the beginning. RevEnergy has another patent pending that incorporates additional systems and methods.
“We are extremely pleased with the continued development of our patented system and method. While we are currently applying it to the removal of H2S in crude oil, it could expand to other hydrocarbons in the future,” said Jason Groves, CEO of RevEnergy. “This new issuance, along with our additional patent that is pending, continues to validate the solution our founders envisioned for the oil and gas industry. We plan to leverage our patented technology to refine our fabrication plans and build new systems as we enter the market in the coming year.”
