“In the good old days,” the production of crude oil and natural gas was a lot easier. Oil and Gas were relatively plentiful, easy to find, and sweet. Today, it is generally accepted that oil and gas production is becoming increasingly sour, and that the trend is here to stay. Fortunately, Merichem provides practical oil and gas treating solutions; with our beneficial re-use of spent caustic and secondary materials management services and our innovative technologies that remove sulfur and other impurities from hydrocarbon liquids and gases. The LO-CAT® technologies and the FIBER FILM® technologies were first licensed into upstream sector of the oil & gas industry in 1983 and 1986 respectively.
