Praxair signs long-term contract with Total and further expands pipeline network in the Port of Antwerp


Praxair, Inc. has signed a 15-year contract to supply oxygen (O2) and nitrogen (N2) to Total in the Port of Antwerp.

Total, a global integrated energy producer and provider, is currently investing €1bn ($1.1bn) in the port to upgrade its largest refining and petrochemicals platform in Europe.

In order to successfully supply Total with this influx, Praxair is expanding its recently built O2 pipeline an additional three miles to connect with Total’s refinery. The Tier One company will also expand its N2 pipeline on the west bank of the river to efficiently serve existing and petrochemical customers.

Frank Wegmann, Managing Director of Praxair Germany and Benelux, explained, “Our pipeline network expansion provides us the enhanced ability to efficiently and effectively meet the nitrogen and oxygen needs of companies in this growing chemical park. Integrated petrochemical ports such as Antwerp remain highly competitive, continue to attract billions of dollars of investment and are positioned for growth for years to come.”
