The 750 000 tpy plant is a joint venture between Yara International and BASF. Under the terms of the long-term agreement, Praxair supplies approximately 170 million ft3/d of hydrogen and 2000 tpd of nitrogen to the plant. Praxair has invested over US$400 million to add hydrogen and nitrogen production capacity and extend its Gulf Coast pipeline systems nearly 50 miles from Texas City to the Freeport area to support the project.
Dan Yankowski, President for Praxair’s Global Hydrogen operations, said: “Praxair, Yara and BASF have worked diligently over the past three years to bring this important project to fruition.
“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.”
