Sandbox:Mercury production with gas

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Mercury is also is a naturally occurring contaminant found primarily in natural gas. As with hydrogen sulfide, there is little alternative but to produce and then remove it, generally at a central treating plant rather than on site. The occurrence of mercury in quantity and location is discussed in Wilhelm.[1] Regulations exist restricting the amount present in natural gas for sale.
