Air Products signs two agreements to move Texas CSS project forward

PENNSYLVANIA, US: Air Products has signed agreements with Valero Energy Corporation and Denbury Onshore LLC to proceed with a planned carbon capture and sequestration project in Port Arthur, Texas. The carbon dioxide (CO2) to be captured by Air Products will be delivered by Air Products via a pipeline owned by Denbury Green Pipeline-Texas to Denbury Onshore beginning in late 2012. The CO2 will be used by Denbury Onshore in enhanced oil recovery operations.


“The signing of these agreements is a key step in moving this important project forward. We are a technology solutions provider and at Port Arthur we will have the opportunity to demonstrate these capabilities at a large industrial scale,” said Wilbur Mok, Vice President, North America Tonnage Gases, Air Products.   


Air Products will design, construct and operate a state-of-the-art system to capture CO2 from its two steam methane reformers (SMR) located within the Valero Refinery in Port Arthur. The CO2 removal technology will be retrofitted to the SMRs, which produce hydrogen to assist in the making of cleaner burning transportation fuels by refinery customers on Air Products’ Gulf Coast hydrogen pipeline network. Approximately one million ton of CO2 annually will be recovered, purified by Air Products. The company is currently working on several carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects around the world for the power market.
