Sulfur and Carbon Dioxide Removal In addition to water, oil, and NGL removal, one of the most important parts of gas processing involves the removal of sulfur and carbon dioxide. Natural gas from some wells contains significant amounts of sulfur and carbon dioxide. This natural gas, because of the rotten smell provided by its sulfur content, is commonly called 'sour gas'. Sour gas is undesirable because the sulfur compounds it contains can be extremely harmful, even lethal, to breathe. Sour gas can also be extremely corrosive. In addition, the sulfur that exists in the natural gas stream can be extracted and marketed on its own. In fact, according to the USGS, U.S. sulfur production from gas processing plants accounts for about 15 percent of the total U.S. production of sulfur. For information on the production of sulfur in the United States, visit the USGS here.

Well you wanted sources here they are:
Maybe the BP disaster is going to cause a devastation beyond what we had calculated. Too much ground fissure and reflection in the central and southwestern american region that could give way.
did you know that there are 15 nuclear plants within a couple of miles of that fault?
Guess that's why we have fixed a lot of bridges and roads along this region!
Next I couldn't help notice the Rossby wave effect I am seeing in the national forecast that's dipping from Canada all the way down to Baja California, please check out. en.wikipedia.org... Makes me wonder if the ripple effect from the Rossby wave could help influence earthquakes by its ripple effect on the Earth's surface!edit on 13-3-2012 by Abduct3d because: trying to fix mistake so it will post
LETONA, Ark. — The U.S. Geological Survey says a 2.3-magnitude earthquake was reported Wednesday morning north of Searcy.
No damages or injuries have been reported with the quake, which was centered about 10 miles north-northeast of Searcy. The USGS says the quake struck at 3:54 a.m. Wednesday and was closest to the White County towns of Letona, Pangburn and Judsonia.

Having relatives and being born in the Missouri Bootheel, I have always been around the area.
I have to say that the water in that area has Always had a rotten eggs or a chlorine taste and smell.
And I mean for atleast the fifty years I have been around.
This taste or smell of water in this area is not predicting anything new.
I am also worried... worried that people may not realize that if you are smelling a rotten egg, or sulfur smell, the First thing to do is to call the gas company for leaks! Not worry about earthquakes, worry about blowing yourself and others to h*ll and gone with a gas leak.
Otherwise, thanks OP for this very interesting thread. I will be watching this.
By the way... I did not know about the Gulf, thanks for giving me something to research.

I see someone used this as another excuse to dredge up the implausible ideas regarding the oil spill. When that was going on more junk science than on any other topic popped up here. People were posting illiterate nonsense on a scale almost unbelievable.

well, here goes a story of mine. I am sure you may understand why I do not choose to tell others. But, in the way things are rolling, I do believe in what I saw, and I am estimated mid-July to end-August area, 2012.
Here goes: At the end of December, 2010, I had an awake vision. I was watching tv, and a very clear vision seemed to pop into my vision-of course it was not really in front of me-but the vision was so strong and clear, it was as if it were on the tv.
I have honestly, only had this type of vision twice, where I am wide awake and seeing clearly images that are not really there-the first one I had was over 10 years ago now. And, it was a major world event, and yes it did come true.
But, the vision I had in 2010, was a map being shown to me, it was the USA, but not as it is . It is hard to describe what I saw, but the right side- areas had curled up, and lowered areas some areas from like the LA Gulf area, and the Gulf was flowing up into this decline in the earth, the Mississippi River had flood, filling with the ocean water. There were a coupld of odd high points on the right side, that are not now inclines.
The left side had the "sinking and curling" on this side also. Ther was actually a point right at the CA, OR , NV that a high point had formed, and most of CA was under water.
Now, I cannot explain everything I saw. and I am not even going to touch the CA area with a "prediction", but I will say that I feel strongly that some of the activities I had a vision of for Arkansas side, and all the surrounding areas, I will say mid July to Mid August, 2012.
I don't thing it will be as extreme as my vision, I mean curling, I have no idea why I saw that. I do know me and you don't, so I am sure I sound like...well, you know -fill the blank with a crazy word. Somehow, I see things, feel things, and always have. But, only twice in my life, have I had these awake visions-which prob still means nothing. I don't know, It never hurts to be prepared, that's all.

Sulfuric acid smells like rotten eggs.
Sulfur dioxide smells like burnt matches.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the satellite images of all the venting gases in those areas from a thread a week or so ago. I can't fine the thread, but I'm sure a lot of you remember it.
Here is it: THREAD
