Praxair signs longterm contract for H2 supply in Peru 

By Gerald Ondrey |

Praxair, Inc. (Danbury, Conn.; www.praxair.com) has signed a longterm contract to provide hydrogen to Repsol, one of the world’s largest producers of petrochemicals. The new steam methane reformer (SMR) will be constructed at Repsol’s La Pampilla petroleum refinery, in the Callao district, near Lima, and is expected to start up in 2016. The 12-million standard-cubic-feet per day SMR will use natural gas or naphtha as feedstock for the production of hydrogen. The La Pampilla refinery produces gasoline, liquefied petroleum gas, jet fuel, kerosene, diesel and asphalts, among other products, to serve the local market. The Repsol refinery will also produce low-sulfur diesel fuel that will comply with the strictest environmental standards and be used to serve customers in the local market.
