In the operation of the Wildcat Hills field and plant, modifications have been carried out to increase the maximum throughput, increase the efficiency of the sulphur recovery, decrease the chemical consumption, and decrease downtime and operational and maintenance costs, while maintaining or increasing the safety throughout the operation.
Many bottlenecks in plant equipment have been successfully removed with small additional costs, and these, along with operational techniques and methods of control, have increased the capacity and the efficiency of parts of the gas treating system by approximately 30 per cent. Also by proving gas treating and the selection of catalysts, the capacity of the sulphur plant has been increased by approximately 15 per cent.
The purpose of this article is to describe the general operation and discuss some of the ways in which many of the problem areas were studied and improved.
