Praxair Inc. has announced that it has signed a long-term contract to supply hydrogen to Marathon Petroleum Corp.’s refinery in Garyville, Louisiana, US.
The company will use the hydrogen to support an ultra-low-sulfur diesel project planned for 2018.
The hydrogen will be supplied through Praxair’s extensive Southeast Louisiana pipeline network.
Dan Yankowski, President of Praxair’s global hydrogen business, said: “Garyville is home to Marathon Petroleum’s largest refinery, the third largest by capacity in the US, and Praxair is proud to be supporting their business in the Gulf Coast […] This type of opportunity to further serve our customers in the region is why we expanded our presence in the lower Mississippi River corridor several years ago.”
Marathon Petroleum is the third-largest transportation fuels refiner in the US and operates an integrated refining, marketing and transportation system in the Midwest, East, Southeast and Gulf Coast. Praxair operates over 50 hydrogen production facilities and six hydrogen pipeline systems worldwide.
