Air Products operates hydrogen pipeline networks around the world. Examples include pipelines in Sarnia, Ontario and Edmonton, Alberta in Canada; in Rotterdam in The Netherlands; and in the U.S. in Southern California and the Texas/Louisiana Gulf Coast. We continue to grow and expand these franchises.
Before 2012 Air Products operated two separate hydrogen pipeline systems in Texas and Louisiana. To deliver additional value to customers, Air Products joined the two pipelines with a new 180-mile segment. This expansion makes it the world’s largest hydrogen plant and pipeline supply network. Air Products’ Gulf Coast Pipeline Network is now able to provide hydrogen to customers along the 600-mile pipeline span from over 20 hydrogen production facilities with a system capacity of 1.4 billion SCFD (standard cubic feet per day).
Air Products has safely operated hydrogen pipelines for over 40 years, incorporating a design philosophy based on 100 years of continuous safe operation. Our pipeline design and operations meet or exceed government requirements.
