Today, there was an H2S gas leak in Roudtain Oil Refinery reaching areas so far as the south of Kuwait. So far officials say the levels are safe and we’re constantly watching the news and listening to official channels. Again like any other incidents in Kuwait, stuff being shared on twitter shouldn’t be re tweeted unless 100% verified.
H2S gas is heavier than air, and has a very pungent smell (rotten eggs). High levels of this gas are very dangerous however officials are only stating that levels are very minimal and did not reach dangerous levels. Also the gas was contained and no injuries were reported from the KOC.
I’ll try to keep you posted with the news and updates regarding the H2S gas leak in Kuwait.
