Air Liquide has announced the signing of two long-term supply agreements with Marathon Petroleum Company for a total of up to 900 tonnes per day (tpd) of oxygen for Marathon’s refineries in Texas City, Texas and Garyville, Louisiana.
The two agreements mark a growing relationship between the two companies and nearly double the amount of oxygen that Air Liquide will supply to Marathon Petroleum in total.
Both sites are located on the Gulf Coast.
At Marathon Petroleum’s Galveston Bay Refinery in Texas City, Air Liquide will increase its current oxygen delivery by 400 tpd, while in Garyville Air Liquide will increase oxygen delivery by up to as much as 500 tpd.
Michael J. Graff, Executive Vice-President and Executive Committee Member at the Air Liquide Group, enthused, “Air Liquide is pleased to build upon its existing relationship with Marathon Petroleum and further expand its portfolio of investments in the US.”
“The two new supply agreements with Marathon Petroleum further demonstrate Air Liquide’s ability to develop and scale its capacity across our pipeline networks and safely and reliably serve the growing demand for industrial gases in key geographies.”
Marathon Petroleum Corporation operates the US’ largest refining system with more than 3 million barrels per day of crude oil refining capacity across 16 refineries.
