LEHIGH VALLEY, US: Stretching from the Houston Ship Channel in Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana, Air Products, held a dedication ceremony for what is the world’s largest hydrogen plant and pipeline supply network. Air Products had operated two hydrogen pipeline systems in Texas and Louisiana before joining them with a new 180-mile segment.

Air Products’ Gulf Coast Connection Pipeline (GCCP) is now able to provide hydrogen to customers along the 600-mile pipeline span from over 20 hydrogen production facilities. “Product supply and reliability are the top priorities to the refinery and petrochemical industries. This completed pipeline project increases the reliable and flexible supply of hydrogen, critically important to the sustainability of these industries and allows them to continue to expand and thrive,” said Jeff Byrne, Vice President and General Manager, Tonnage Gases, speaking at the Air Products’ Plaquemine facility event gathering.

The company announced the pipeline project in 2010 and placed it onstream in August 2012 to begin supply of over 1.2 billion cubic feet of hydrogen per day to Louisiana and Texas customers.

“The ability to move product along the pipeline, and to be able to source hydrogen for customers in Louisiana from production facilities hundreds of miles away in Texas, was outstanding, recognized, and appreciated by our customers,” said Byrne.

“We’ve already signed and announced agreements with customers for new and increased product supply that allow for some of the hydrogen allotment to be directed to multiple customer locations in the two states,” added Byrne.
