Praxair has announced that the company has completed an upgrade to its air separation liquefaction capabilities in Fort Saskatchewan and Prentiss, Alberta.
Praxair has completed the construction of new carbon dioxide and liquid nitrogen distribution and storage facilities in Grande Prairie, Alberta, and Dawson Creek, British Columbia.
The plant upgrades and new facilities and equipment are part of Praxair’s ongoing commitment to Western Canada’s growing oil and gas market. Praxair Canada also operates more than 50 kilometers of pipelines in the Edmonton – Fort Saskatchewan corridor.
“We continue to invest in key infrastructure expansion and upgrades that increase our capacity in the region, further enabling Praxair to reliably serve energy customers throughout Western Canada,” said Sean Durbin, president of Praxair Canada. “Our expanded air separation units, new distribution and storage facilities and additional transportation equipment provide us more flexibility to deliver our products to our customers when and where they need them most.”
Houston, Texas, based Thigpen Energy has selected Chart for the provision of LNG fueling equipment and supplies – with construction already underway. Earlier this week it was announced that the company’s eastern European outfit, Chart Ferox, was chosen to construct LNG filling station in Poland.
