Though there are no reported injuries associated with this event, H2S has the potential to be incredibly dangerous to anyone in its path. Hydrogen Sulfide is commonly associated with the Oil and Natural Gas industries, because it is commonly found in natural gas and crude oil when extracted from ground sources.
