PULLACH, GERMANY: The Linde gases division in Germany and Total Raffinerie Mitteldeutschland GmbH in Leuna, Germany are extending their existing gas supply partnership by a further 15 years. The contract is worth approximately €1 billion and is due to take effect on 1 January 2018.

This new deal propels the two-decade partnership between both companies towards a long-term future.

Since the Total refinery in Leuna commenced operations in 1997, Linde has been supplying it with hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen from its local facilities. With an annual consumption volume of over 560 million standards cubic metres of oxygen, over 180 million standards cubic metres of hydrogen and 120 million standards cubic metres of nitrogen Total’s central Germany location ranks as Linde’s largest single customer in Germany.

The agreement also covers the operation of a gas separation plant at the refinery site, which recovers carbon dioxide (CO2) from the refinery’s flue gases for resale to Linde customers.

“With the newly agreed provisions, we will continue our long-term collaboration over the course of two decades. We are pleased to continue our partner-like relationship and constructive cooperation,” said Dr Willi Frantz, managing director, Total Raffinerie.

“We are delighted to be further investing in our long-standing and successful collaboration with Total in Leuna. While our remote operation centre at this site is of international significance to us, local long-term contracts remain the bedrock of our business there,” added Olaf Reckenhofer, head of region central Europe at Linde’s gases division.
