Pemex partners with Linde for efficient hydrogen supply


Petróleos Mexicanos has begun the process for the selection of suitable partners for the supply of hydrogen (H2) to the refineries in Cadereyta, in the state of Nuevo León, and Madero, in the state of Tamaulipas.

Such alliances will allow for cost reduction and improvement of the reliability in H2 production, in order to reduce risks in the crude oil processing capacity and also reduce the frequency of unscheduled shutdowns.

In February last year, Petróleos Mexicanos finalised its first joint venture in auxiliary services for the National Refining System, upon entering into an agreement with Air Liquide, which created income of $51m for Pemex. The French company will supply H2 to the Miguel Hidalgo refinery in Tula for the next 20 years.
