Air Liquide is no longer able to continue its remaining activities in Ukraine.
Following recent decisions of the DNR - self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic - establishing its administrative control over some Ukrainian companies, (including Air Liquide Yenakievo) operating in the Donbass region, Air Liquide is no longer able to continue its remaining activities in that region.
The company states that the security of its employees as well as compliance with applicable Ukrainian and international laws remain its priority.
Air Liquide in Ukraine
Air Liquide has been present in Ukraine since 1992 through its Engineering and Construction activity. In 2011, Air Liquide started the production and selling of industrial gases. In the Donbass, Air Liquide owns an oxygen production unit dedicated to supply one steel customer. This activity is not significant given the size of the Group’s activities in Europe.
Air Liquide México S.A. de R.L. de C.V. has penned a deal to supply state-owned petroleum company Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) with hydrogen (H2).
Welding product manufacturer Lincoln Electric Holdings, Inc. has entered into exclusive negotiations to acquire Air Liquide’s welding business.
Air Liquide Global E&C Solutions, the engineering and construction division of the Air Liquide Group, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific Company (AG&P), an integrator of infrastructure solutions across the LNG supply chain, to develop small-scale LNG infrastructure for LNG distribution across Asia.
