Air Products creating world’s largest H2-pipeline-supply network

By Gerald Ondrey |

Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. (Lehigh Valley, Pa.; www.airproducts.com) plans to construct a new 180-mile long pipeline connecting its existing Louisiana and Texas hydrogen pipeline systems, creating the world’s largest hydrogen plant and pipeline supply network. This integrated pipeline system will unite over 20 hydrogen plants and over 600 miles of pipelines to supply the La. and Tex. Petroleum-refinery and petrochemical industries with over 1-billion ft3/d of H2. The new Gulf Coast hydrogen pipeline network is expected to be operational in mid-2012. The new pipeline extension, which is in the project development phase, will connect Air Products’ Texas facilities to the Louisiana system near Baton Rouge. Once complete, Air Products’ hydrogen pipeline supply network will stretch from the Houston Ship Channel in to New Orleans, La. Air Products continues to add new hydrogen capacity in the Gulf Coast, with recent start-ups of plants in Garyville and Baton Rouge, La. in 2010, as well as a new world-scale hydrogen production plant currently under construction in Luling, La. In addition, Air Products recently acquired and commissioned a new standalone hydrogen plant in Corpus Christi, Tex.
