Air Products has announced plans to build, own and operate a new liquid nitrogen production facility in Mooreland, Oklahoma, US.

The new facility is set to have an approximate 250 ton per day (tpd) capacity and according to the company, will be on stream in 2012.

A further feather in the company's cap, the new facility will strengthen Air Products’ existing leadership position in supplying the region’s oilfield services market.

“The decision to build this facility will expand our supply position in this market which largely serves the oilfield services industry. The plant will both assist in meeting increased liquid product demand and enhance our responsiveness level to customers for needed services,” said Nelson Squires, Vice-President, North America Merchant Gases at Air Products.

Air Products has supplied nitrogen and oxygen for upstream oil and gas production and processing for more than 40 years, utilising a variety of supply modes along with the most comprehensive package of value-added technologies, services and equipment available.

Air Products also has additional Oklahoma operations that produce liquid products for other markets including food, chemicals, metal processing, electronics and medical applications.

The Oil Services Industry will be in focus in the upcoming May issue of gasworld magazine. Something to shout about in the oil services sector? Want to advertise? Get in touch today for more information!
