Air Products has announced a long term agreement with Enterprise Products Operating LLC that will increase hydrogen supply for refinery and petrochemical customers connected to Air Products’ vast Gulf Coast Connection Pipeline system. Air Products will build, own and operate a 40 million ft3/d hydrogen production facility to process a hydrogen rich off gas stream from a new propane dehydrogenation (PDH) facility Enterprise is currently constructing in Mont Belvieu, Texas. The new PDH plant is scheduled to begin service in the third quarter of 2015.
Wilbur Mok, vice president, North American Tonnage Gases, Air Products said, "we are pleased to expand the long term relationship we have with Enterprise. This hydrogen source enhances our ability to meet the growing demand of our customers on our pipeline, and it helps increase the supply reliability and flexibility of our system. The established pipeline system was an asset in maximising the value of this product since it enables us to purchase more off gas during the life of the contract as we continue to meet our customers’ growing demand."
