Refineries generally process crude oil into motor and heating fuels, but also produce gaseous fuels, synthesis gases, petrochemicals and feeds for lubricant production and asphalt.
Environmental pressures are particularly acute in this sector given the dwindling supplies of natural reserves and the effects of climate change. Increasingly severe environmental protection laws dictate cleaner production processes and products coupled with lower emission levels. In addition, globalisation is raising the efficiency bar. Industrial gases can play a vital role in meeting these challenges.
Refineries require large quantities of gases to control various processes. Pure oxygen, for example, is used to increase the efficiency of wastewater treatment. Adding oxygen to the air in a Claus plant increases plant capacity and flexibility, while improving ammonia conversion.
We supply the full range of gases – specialty gases included – to optimise refining processes. All of our gases are available in cylinder or liquid form. You also have the option of pipeline delivery or on-site production for larger or fluctuating volume requirements. And for your peace of mind, we can service your gas equipment for you. You can also rely on us for training support. Our expertise will bring you quality and environmental benefits in the following areas in particular:
