Air Liquide Large Industries U.S. LP has entered into agreements with Valero Energy Corporation (Valero) for the long-term supply of hydrogen to two Texas refineries.
With one refinery in Texas City and the other in Port Arthur, Air Liquide will supply a total of 105 million standard cubic feet per day (SCFD) of hydrogen to the two refineries.
The long-term hydrogen supply agreements for Valero’s refineries will span more than 15 years.
Commenting on the new agreements, Michael Graff, President & CEO of American Air Liquide Holdings, Inc. said, “Air Liquide and Valero share a vision for a reliable, efficient and environmentally responsible energy supply, and our companies enjoy a long-term relationship that continues to grow.”
“Air Liquide’s advanced hydrogen production technologies and expansive pipeline and logistics network uniquely position us to offer the refining and petrochemical industries the capacity, reliability and energy efficiency required to meet the growing demand for their products.”
Air Liquide has been a long-term partner with Valero, beginning in 1996 with hydrogen supply to the company’s Corpus Christi refinery, and then to the Texas City and Three Rivers refineries in 1998.
