Air Liquide signs new long-term contract to supply hydrogen to Shell refinery

January 13/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Air Liquide Philippines and Pilipinas Shell have recently signed a long-term contract for a supply of Hydrogen to Shells Tabangao refinery in Batangas, Philippines, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The new venture will secure for the Tabangao refinery a continuous supply of Hydrogen for its processing needs.

Air Liquide will invest EUR30 million in the construction of a state-of-the-art Hydrogen Manufacturing Unit (HMU) that will be built on the Tabangao refinery in Batangas. The HMU, owned and operated by Air Liquide, will be fitted with a CO2 recovery unit that mitigates direct carbon emission levels by capturing and liquifying the CO2 for other uses. This new large scale project is in line with Air Liquides Climate Objectives and commitment to supporting key customers and strategic partners with more sustainable solutions.

"This gas supply contract reflects the long-term partnership and the mutual trust between Air Liquide and Shell. We are confident in our ability to create value for our key customers in the Philippines and deliver superior performance that considers both business interests and environmental sustainability," Francois Abrial, member of the Air Liquide Groups Executive Committee supervising Asia Pacific said.

As MRC informed previously, in July 2019, Air Liquide signed a long-term agreement with Gulf Coast Growth Ventures (GCGV), a 50/50 joint venture between ExxonMobil and SABIC, to supply oxygen and nitrogen from its industrial gas pipeline network to GCGVs planned ethane cracker facility located near Corpus Christi, in Texas.

We also remind that Shell Singapore restarted its naphtha cracker in Bukom Island in early December 2019, following a two months maintenance shutdown since the beginning of October 2019. Thus, this cracker was taken off-stream for the turnaround on 1 October 2019. The cracker is able to produce 960,000 tons/year of ethylene and 550,000 tons/year of propylene.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,904,410 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2019, up by 6% year on year. Shipments of all PE grades increased. PE shipments increased from both domestic producers and foreign suppliers. The PP consumption in the Russian market was 1,161,830 tonnes in January-November 2019, up by 7% year on year. Deliveries of all grades of propylene polymers increased, with the homopolymer PP segment accounting for the largest increase.

Royal Dutch Shell plc is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands and with its registered office in London, United Kingdom. It is the biggest company in the world in terms of revenue and one of the six oil and gas "supermajors". Shell is vertically integrated and is active in every area of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production, refining, distribution and marketing, petrochemicals, power generation and trading.
