Air Products to build new world-scale H2 plant to support Shell Scotford facility

Gerald Ondrey

Air Products (Lehigh Valley, Pa.; www.airproducts.com), and its subsidiary Air Products Canada Ltd., today announced plans to build, own and operate a new world-scale hydrogen production plant adjacent to Shell Canada’s Scotford facility located northeast of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The Air Products facility will produce over 150 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of hydrogen and will be connected to Air Products Canada’s existing Heartland Hydrogen Pipeline system which supplies refiners, upgraders, chemical processors and other industries in the Alberta Industrial Heartland region. The new Air Products Canada hydrogen plant is to be commissioned in the second half of 2015 pending regulatory approval.

The new Canadian plant will be built under a long-term agreement for Air Products to supply Shell Scotford with hydrogen and steam. The Scotford contract represents the first award under a recently signed Enterprise Framework Agreement (EFA) between Shell and Air Products. The EFA provides a template for all future industrial gas contracts between Shell and Air Products.

The Shell Scotford industrial location will gain an added supply reliability benefit from its connection to Air Products Canada’s 30-mile hydrogen pipeline. This pipeline is also fed by two existing hydrogen production plants in Edmonton that produce over 180 MMSCFD of hydrogen.

The new hydrogen facility will be built through the global hydrogen alliance between Air Products and Technip, a world leader in project management, engineering and construction. The plant will feature the latest technology advancements to maximize energy efficiency and emissions reduction, and will include optimal heat integration, which in turn lowers feedstock consumption during production. The plant configuration and deployed technologies support Air Products’ overall sustainability goals of reducing energy consumption and emissions.
