Air Liquide starts supplying hydrogen in Kazakhstan through the acquisition of hydrogen and purification units with a total capacity of up to 30.000 Nm3/h. This investment of 12 million euros by Air Liquide Munay Tech Gases (ALMTG) marks the first step in the cooperation between Air Liquide and KazMunayGaz (KMG). The hydrogen and steam produced will be delivered to the Pavlodar Oil and Chemistry Refinery (POCR) in the context of a long term Gas Supply Agreement.

Hydrogen is used for the process of hydrotreatment of diesel and gasoline to reduce sulfur content, thus contributing to cleaner transportation fuels. Air Liquide will bring its technology know-how and operational expertise to reduce the energy consumption and increase operational reliability and flexibility of hydrogen facilities, thus contributing to improving efficiency and competitiveness of the Pavlodar refinery.

ALMTG is a joint-venture between Air Liquide and KazMunayGaz NC (KMG), the Kazakhstan National Oil & Gas company with respective 75% and 25% ownership. The joint venture partners plan to pursue further opportunities in hydrogen and nitrogen supply to KMG’s other refineries.

Olivier Randet, Vice-President, Cluster Eastern Europe, said: “We are delighted to work with KazMunayGaz and to start operating in Kazakhstan. We are committed to provide our long-time expertise to improve efficiency and reliability for the benefit of our customer. We are looking forward to continuing supporting industrial development in Kazakhstan.”
