Air Products hydrogen plant on-stream


Air Products Canadas new hydrogen plant in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada is on-stream and supplying 80 million standard-cubic-feet-per-day (MMSCFD) of hydrogen to two nearby refineries.

The facility is the largest plant outsourcing hydrogen in Canada and the second new Air Products facility to supply hydrogen to Canadian refineries and other customers. In June, Air Products announced the commercialization of a large-scale steam methane reformer hydrogen plant in Strathcona County, near Edmonton, Alberta.

The new Sarnia hydrogen production facility, a natural gas-based steam methane reformer, will help refineries operated by Suncor Energy Products and Shell Canada Products produce ultra low sulphur diesel and other petroleum products. The Air Products facility is located on a part of the Shell refinery land and supplies hydrogen by pipeline to the nearby Suncor refinery.

“Air Products is pleased to move forward in meeting the hydrogen needs of Suncor and Shell in an area of Canada that is a key refining centre,” said Stephen Losby, general manager Canada for Air Products.
