Air Products to build helium plant for RasGas

LEHIGH VALLEY, US: Air Products And Chemicals Inc said it will supply to RasGas Company Ltd (RasGas), the helium licensor package equipment for the new helium 3 plant to be located at the Barzan facility in RasLaffan industrial city, Qatar.

Additionally, Air Products won the award for the long-term helium supply from the helium 3 plant which is expected to produce up to 0.4 Bsf per annum of liquid helium, and in achieving this, the company will again be the world’s largest commercial supplier of helium when the plant begins production in 2018.

“These are two very big accomplishments for our company. The equipment win to build the helium plant demonstrates RasGas’ confidence in Air Products and the long-term helium supply contract win demonstrates to our many customers our dedication to them in ensuring a consistent and reliable helium supply,” said Walter Nelson, vice president and general manager, global helium at Air Products.

The helium supply contract win is another important step taken recently by Air Products to obtain reliable helium supply for customers, Air Products said.

Helium is used in many unique and valued applications, the company said.
