OTC Disclosure News Service
Technip (Paris:TEC) (ISIN:FR0000131708) (ADR:TKPPY) was awarded a
contract by Air Products to provide technology, engineering and
procurement services for a grassroots hydrogen plant in Baytown, Texas,
USA. The 3.5 million standard cubic meters per day plant will produce
hydrogen and carbon monoxide (CO) to be supplied to customers from Air
Products’ established Gulf Coast Hydrogen and CO Pipeline Networks.
The plant will be built through the global hydrogen alliance(1)
between Air Products and Technip. It will feature Technip’s proprietary
high efficiency steam methane reforming (SMR) technology to produce high
purity hydrogen, carbon monoxide and export steam. It will also use the
latest nitrogen oxide reduction technology to reduce emissions.
Technip’s operating center in Claremont, California, USA, will execute
the project, which is scheduled for completion in 2018.
Stan Knez, President, Technip Stone Webster Process Technology,
commented: “We are proud that our SMR technology is helping customers
meet the world’s growing energy needs in a reliable, efficient and
sustainable manner. We look forward to executing this new project under
our global alliance with Air Products. This is the longest and most
productive global hydrogen alliance supporting the oil and gas industry
around the world.”
About onshore products
Hydrogen: hydrogen is widely used in petroleum refining
processes to remove impurities found in crude oil such as
sulfur, olefins and aromatics to meet the product fuels
specifications. Removing these components allows gasoline and
diesel to burn cleaner and thus makes hydrogen a critical
component in the production of cleaner fuels needed by modern,
efficient internal combustion engines.
Reformer: a reformer (also called steam reformer or steam
methane reformer) is a widely used industrial processing device
in which a fossil fuel reacts with steam at high temperatures in
the presence of a catalyst to produce hydrogen.
