Praxair New Nitrogen Plant in New Mexico

DANBURY, US: Praxair Inc has started up a second nitrogen plant at its facility in Kirtland, New Mexico to support growing nitrogen demand in the San Juan basin, which includes southwestern Colorado and northwestern New Mexico. The new plant will increase total capacity at the site to 300 tonne per day of liquid nitrogen.

Demand for nitrogen continues to grow as local oil and gas operators develop new oil resources in the area. Nitrogen is an inert gas that can effectively replace water that is typically used in hydraulic fracturing. “Praxair’s new plant will strengthen our supply position in the San Juan basin and help us meet the increasing pipeline and liquid nitrogen demand from customers in this geography,” said Gerald Miller, Vice President of the West Region, US industrial gases business, Praxair.
