26 October 2015: Air Products to build Steam Methane Reformer Plant in Baytown, Texas

26 October 2015

Air Products will invest $350-$400 million to build, own and operate a world-scale steam methane reformer (SMR) in Baytown, Texas. The SMR will produce hydrogen and carbon monoxide (CO) to be supplied to customers from Air Products’ Gulf Coast Hydrogen and CO Pipeline Networks. Both product capacities from the new facility are already sold-out ahead of the anticipated onstream production in 2018.

The SMR and cold box will produce approximately 125 million standard cubic feet per day of hydrogen and a world-scale supply of carbon monoxide.

The new SMR will be built through the global hydrogen alliance between Air Products and Technip. The plant will feature the latest technology to maximise energy efficiency and reduce emissions, and will include optimal heat integration, which in turn lowers feedstock consumption. The plant configuration and deployed technologies support Air Products’ overall sustainability goals of reducing energy consumption and emissions.

Hydrogen is widely used in petroleum refining processes to remove impurities found in crude oil such as sulphur, olefins and aromatics to meet 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.
