Ravenswood, WV – February 24, 2020 – Valtronics® Solutions, a diverse manufacturing and services company within the natural gas, liquefied natural gas, natural gas liquids, petroleum and chemical industries announces its partnership with Hobré Analyzer Solutions. Hobré is a leader in the field of manufacturing, and maintenance of online analyzers, for natural gas and petrochemical markets. With more than 30 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, Valtronics will represent the entire line of products manufactured by Hobré. The contracted areas are the Mid-Atlantic region as well as the states that fall within the Appalachian region including OH, GA, SC, NC, TN, KY, DE, and MD.
Ken Thompson, President of Valtronics Solutions added, “Hobré is an excellent fit for Valtronics Solutions. Changes with the natural gas value stream, well locations, and end use require more analysis and more sophisticated analyzers, including sour gas. Sour gas is natural gas containing hydrogen sulphide (H2S), a potentially corrosive substance, which needs to be removed from the gas stream. Hobré produces an analyzer that detects and measures H2S levels accurately.”
Sour gas is natural gas containing significant amounts of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). If the sulfur present in gas is in the form of H2S it must be removed for safety reasons. Most natural gas has less than 1 percent hydrogen sulfide, but deposits have been discovered with more. Hydrogen sulfide is also corrosive, so that gas high in hydrogen sulfide requires special corrosion-resistant production equipment, as well as extra safety precautions.
It has been estimated that 15 to 25% of the natural gas in the U.S. may contain hydrogen sulphide and up to 30% Worldwide.
Dale Langham, Chief Commercial Officer at Hobré, commented; “By partnering with Valtronics Solutions we will continue to strengthen our international market position and continue to build Hobré’s excellent reputation in the global market for high-end analyzer. We have been impressed by Valtronics’ instant commitment to our line of products and we are very optimistic for the future of this partnership”.
Hobré, founded is a leader in the field of design, manufacturing, marketing and maintenance of on line analyzers, sample systems and complete turnkey analyzer systems for the oil & gas and petrochemical sector. Hobré’s on line analyzer products, like the Wobbe Index and H2S/S analyzer, are state of the art solutions in the industry.
