Hydroprocessing in the oil refining industry

Hydroprocessing in the oil refining industry includes processes such as hydrogenation, hydrocracking and hydrotreating. These processes are used in producing today’s energy and transportation fuels. As a refiner, your operation may be faced with using new sources of heavier, sour crude while facing stricter environmental regulations. That’s where Air Products’ industrial gas solutions come into play. We understand that no two refineries are alike and can be faced with different customer demands. As a global leading producer of on-purpose hydrogen, we have a portfolio of hydrogen supply technology to serve a broad range of users from bulk delivery to tonnage size ranging from pipeline or from a dedicated plant located at or near a customer’s facility. We own, operate and manage a large fleet of hydrogen plants and can provide custom designs for your requirements, which can include steam, cogenerated power, feedstock flexibility, utility synergies, and additional hydrogen needs. No problem if your demand is smaller. We can supply small scale hydrogen users (<5000 bpd hydrotreaters) via liquid hydrogen delivery or by small onsite generation.
