Streamline Innovations, American technology solutions company focused on water and gas treatment and Saudi Arabia-based trading company and supplier to the energy industry, Zamil Group Trade & Services have entered into a partnership to market and deploy treatment solutions for hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in the Kingdom.

The business expansion of the Streamline comes at a time when the collective Middle East energy industry is moving toward more sustainable operations aimed at improving Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance. 

As part of the agreement, Streamline will offer its environmentally forward technology and technical expertise, while Zamil will provide access and entry to the Saudi Arabian market, local expertise, infrastructure and established customer relationships, including Saudi Aramco.

“Partnering with Zamil is an important part of our international growth plan to bring our environmentally forward solutions to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, one of the world’s most important energy-producing regions. As momentum grows to achieve net-zero emissions and mitigate climate change, Streamline’s solutions are poised to play a significant role in achieving environmental performance objectives.” 

Crude oil and natural gas production streams are often contaminated with H2S, which represents a serious hazard to human health and is highly corrosive to infrastructure. The ‘sour’ gas is routinely spread to destroy the H2S, but this flaring results in the generation of sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions, which contributes to environmental hazards, including acid rain and respiratory ailments in humans.

To utilize sour oil and gas for beneficial uses, such as power generation, it must be treated to remove the H2S. Conventional treatment methods are typically expensive, generate negative downstream effects and do not permanently prevent the H2S from reconstituting itself. 

Streamline and Zamil are partnering to provide vital H2S treating services throughout the Kingdom with the Valkyrie and Talon solutions, which safely break down H2S at the molecular level into elemental sulfur.

The partnership will focus on initiatives and other opportunities designed to reduce or eliminate H2S and SO2 emissions while creating sustainable, usable energy in the form of clean natural gas or electricity and facilitating the capture and use of related carbon dioxide (CO2) streams. 

Streamline’s biodegradable chemistry and cutting-edge technology deliver the next-generation Redox process, converting toxic gas into elemental sulfur that can be utilized for organic food production, while providing the lowest overall lifecycle cost.

Commenting on the expansion, Mr. Khalid Al Zamil, Chairman of Zamil, remarked that “The establishment of this relationship with Streamline Innovations comes at an important time for Saudi Arabia. Streamline’s solutions strengthen our portfolio of technology and services to help the Kingdom maintain its role as the world’s key supplier of responsibly sourced energy.”
