Air Products’ Texas plant onstream; adds hydrogen supply to Gulf Coast pipeline network


Air Products has increased the supply capacity of its Gulf Coast hydrogen (H2) pipeline supply network by approximately 40 million standard cubic feet per day.

The additional product supply results from Air Products’ H2 production facility in Mont Belvieu, Texas, which is onstream and processing an additional supply of H2-rich off-gas from a propane dehydrogenation plant operated by Enterprise Products Operating LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Enterprise Products Partners L.P. 

“Air Products continually looks for additional sources of H2 to add product supply capacity to our well-established pipeline network system along the Gulf Coast. We had an existing relationship with Enterprise and are pleased to enhance and expand that relationship by processing additional levels of H2-rich off-gas. One of Air Products’ company goals is to always provide excellent service to our customers. Increasing the H2 capacity, supply reliability and flexibility of our pipeline system is a prime example of just that endeavor,” said Marie Ffolkes, President of Industrial Gases Americas at Air Products.

The Mont Belvieu Air Products H2 production facility uses the company’s proven pressure swing adsorption technology, which is already in place at numerous other locations around the world. The increased amounts of off-gas processing and H2 production capability, under a new long-term agreement, builds on Air Products’ successful processing of off-gas from Enterprise at the same complex since 1994.
