Praxair has announced it will expand its storage and industrial gas production capacities at its Kirtland, New Mexico facility. The expansion doubles the current storage capacity and increases production capacity by 100 to 150 tpd over the next two years.

$quot;This phased-in expansion is in response to the growing demand by oil and gas production customers located in the San Juan basin in Colorado and New Mexico,$quot; said Scott Kaltrider, regional vice president, west region, North American Industrial Gases.
