Natural gas liquids (NGLs) are components of a natural gas stream that are separated as liquids. These NGL streams often contain acid gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbonyl sulfide (COS). In order to treat NGL to qualify for transportation and fractionation, the acid gas treating processes are applied.

“NGL treating to meet and exceed specifications need to be designed with utmost care to ensure trouble free commercial operations and to comply with contractual requirements of downstream customers”
