Description

Linde has signed a long-term agreement to supply clean hydrogen and other industrial gases to OCI’s new world-scale blue ammonia plant in Beaumont, Texas.

Linde will build, own and operate an on-site complex which will include autothermal reforming with carbon capture, plus a large air separation plant.

The new complex will be integrated into Linde’s extensive Gulf Coast industrial gas infrastructure. It will supply clean hydrogen and nitrogen to OCI’s 1.1 million ton per annum blue ammonia plant, the first greenfield blue ammonia facility of this scale to come onstream in the United States. Linde will supply OCI with clean hydrogen by sequestering more than 1.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

In addition to supplying OCI, Linde will also use its extensive pipeline network to provide clean hydrogen to existing and new customers in the U.S. Gulf Coast, addressing the increasing demand from companies to decarbonize their operations. The facility will also supply atmospheric and rare gases to existing and new customers. Linde’s total investment will be approximately $1.8bn and the project is expected to start up in 2025.
