Liquid Gas Odorants, including Ethyl Mercaptan for LPG and various odorants (including Mercaptans) for Natural Gas, require an exceptional level of expertise and understanding due to their inherent concentrated ‘Odour’. International Chemicals Engineering (I.C.E) have many years of experience with mercaptans in all aspects – handling, transporting, supply, transferring, detection, injection systems and equipment, storage vessels and emergency response equipment.

I.C.E has a history of supplying Gas Odorants to sites throughout Australia since 1992 without incident. As each site is different and has various supply requirements, I.C.E have built strong relationships with personnel at each site in an effort to ensure all site requirements for supply are met on a regular basis.
As a local distributor and repackaging facility for Arkema Inc. We supply to different Odorants to different sites in a range of vessels from 5lt bottles to 20,000L ISO Tanks.
I.C.E personnel have visited every Gas Odorant using site throughout Australia and are in regular contact with most.
I.C.E has an inventory of some 60,000LT’s of various Odorant blends at our Dandenong facility. It is due to this that we are able to repack odorant into various size vessels and ship throughout Australia within 2-3 business days.
Due to possible unforseen delays or incidents in receiving product from overseas, I.C.E carry an emergency inventory of product.
I.C.E currently supplies Gas Odorant to all major gas producers in Australia. We have our own fleet of vessels ranging in capacity from 5Lt-1000Lt. These tanks are inspected and tested prior to being filled and shipped to the customer.

I.C.E has a fleet of 1050 Litre Transportable vessels and 450 Litre Transportable Vessels. These vessels are owned and maintained by I.C.E, filled at our Dandenong South facility and then shipped throughout Australia and New Zealand. In most cases we supply these as a 'swap and go' type arrangement, much the same as your common BOC bottle.
Once the empty vessel is returned to our facility, prior to it being re-filled, it is visually inspected and any repairs or touch up work required is carried out. At regular intervals we use a qualified inspector to complete a through visual inspection and supply us with a written report.
All our 1050L vessels are fitted with a PRV, ½” ball valve and dry break quick connect for liquid extraction, ½” ball valve and dry break quick connect for blanket pressure supply and float level indication. In certain cases we use different brands of dry break quick connects, depending on the customers requirement.
Personnel at I.C.E are trained in the storage, handling and distribution of gas odorants. Specified staff hold a current license to drive a vehicle containing dangerous goods so as to be clear on the requirements involved in shipping portable vessels around the country.
I.C.E also has trained personnel who visit sites throughout Australia to transfer gas odorant and assist in Emergency.
I.C.E has staff on 24hr Emergency call out in the event of an emergency and/or specialist advice, follow the link below for contact details:
As this product range is unique, our customers are put at ease with the knowledge that a product specialist is available 24 hours. I.C.E also has a fully transportable 'emergancy response recovery cabinet' which can be dispatched to anywhere in Australia. This cabinet can be used in the event of a leaking vessel emitting potent odour. Our recovery cabinet provides a total odour control response for gas odorant - we place the vessel inside the cabinet to contain the odour and it is sent to our facility in Dandenong for repaired in our controlled environment facility.
