Air Liquide Large Industries U.S. LP announces plans for a new world-scale air separation plant near Houston, Texas.

Scheduled to commence operations in mid 2007, the new air separation plant will produce gaseous oxygen and nitrogen and associated liquid products.

It will be connected to Air Liquide’s Gulf Coast pipeline network to supply the increasing needs of existing clients as well as the needs of new clients, particularly in the refining industry.

Woody Garmon, president of Air Liquide Large Industries, said: “We work very closely with our petrochemical and refining customers along the Gulf Coast to meet their manufacturing needs and we are committed to support their expanding requirements.

“The new plant will employ modern technology developed and commercialised by Air Liquide Group’s ongoing Research & Development and Engineering Development efforts.”

Air Liquide Large Industries U.S. LP is the subsidiary of American Air Liquide Holdings, Inc.
