Praxair starts up gas supply to new world-scale ammonia plant in Texas


Praxair has started to supply hydrogen (H2) and nitrogen (N2) to Yara Freeport LLC, a world-scale ammonia plant in Freeport, Texas.

The plant, which is a joint venture between Yara International and BASF, has a capacity of 750,000 metric tons per year.

Under the long-term agreement, the Praxair supplies approximately 170 million standard cubic feet per day of H2 and 2,000 tons per day of N2 to the plant. The Tier One corporation invested more than $400m to add H2 and N2 production capacity and extend its Gulf Coast pipeline systems nearly 50 miles from Texas City to the Freeport area to support this project.

“Praxair, Yara and BASF have worked diligently over the past three years to bring this important project to fruition,” said Dan Yankowski, President for Praxair’s Global H2 operations. “This project, supported by our extensive network of supply systems and pipelines in conjunction with our innovative technologies, provides Yara Freeport with the supply reliability they require to run this world-class ammonia plant efficiently.”
