Praxair Inc. has begun supplying hydrogen to Marathon Petroleum Corp.’s refinery in Garyville, Louisiana, US. The Garyville refinery is the last major grassroots refinery that was built in the US and is the third-largest operating in the US today.
The hydrogen is supplied through a recently commissioned new extension to Praxair’s Southeast Louisiana pipeline network and is being used by Marathon Petroleum in an ultra-low-sulfur diesel project.
“Marathon Petroleum is a valued customer of Praxair and we are proud to be able to extend our relationship to include supplying hydrogen to their refinery in Louisiana,” said Dan Yankowski, president of Praxair’s global hydrogen business. “Our extensive hydrogen system in the lower Mississippi River corridor has been expanded to support the region’s growing chemical and refining industries and this is a great example of how our robust and reliable supply capability is able to support such growth.”
