Absorbent Locat Sulferox ONGC A B S T R A C T Removal of sour gases from acid gas during processing of natural gas is one of the necessary steps towards harnessing fuel efficiency. Our studies on selection of suitable sulfur recovery process from acid gas revealed that liquid phase oxidation process is best suited for safe disposal of acid gas. The liquid redox processes such as LOCAT process (Hydrogen sulphide being absorbed in chelated iron solution) and SulFerox process (converting H2S in

Iron chelate based liquid phase oxidation process has been observed most suitable for treating the acid gas generated at Oil and Natural Gas Commission (ONGC) Plant. Both LOCAT and SulFerox processes are, hence, recommended to ONGC in the turnkey package for potential decision support in favour of designing ONGC plant.
