Total and Linde agree 15-year extension to gas supply contract


Linde Gases, a business division of The Linde Group, and Total Raffinerie Mitteldeutschland are extending their existing partnership by a further 15 years in a contract worth around €1bn ($1.2bn).

Signed in Leuna back in June, the contract is due to take effect on 1st January 2018. This new deal propels the two-decade partnership between both companies towards a long-term future.

Since the Total refinery in Leuna commenced operations in 1997, Linde has been supplying it with hydrogen (H2), oxygen (O2) and nitrogen (N2) from its local facilities. With an annual consumption volume of over 560 million standard cubic metres (MMSCFD) of O2, over 180 MMSCFD of H2 and 120 MMSCFD of N2. Total’s central Germany location ranks as Linde’s largest single customer in Germany. The agreement also covers the operation of a gas separation plant at the refinery site, which recovers carbon dioxide (CO2) from the refinery’s flue gases for resale to Linde customers.
