Air Products Signs Agreement to Build, Own and Operate Syngas Supply Facility for Bharat Petroleum in India

Air Products Signs Agreement to Build, Own and Operate Syngas Supply Facility for Bharat Petroleum in India

Air Products announced the signing of a long-term agreement with Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) to build, own and operate a new syngas production facility at the BPCL Kochi Refinery in Kochi, India to supply BPCL’s new Propylene Derivatives Petrochemical Project (PDPP). Air Products already operates a world-scale industrial gas complex which was commissioned in 2017 to support the BPCL Integrated Refinery Expansion Project (IREP) at the same location. 

The syngas unit will employ Air Products’ proprietary cryogenic gas separation technologies to produce a hydrogen/carbon monoxide syngas which will feed the new PDPP, which BPCL is developing to serve the growing domestic market in India. The addition of the syngas unit will complement the on-going operations of Air Products’ industrial gas complex which now supplies hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and steam to BPCL’s Kochi Refinery. 

Boocock added that Air Products has deployed quite an innovative combination of technologies in order to meet BPCL’s varied, tonnage industrial gas supply needs at the Kochi facility. The innovative combination of technologies includes:

•two steam methane reformer (SMR) trains, designed and built by Air Products through its Global Alliance with TechnipFMC, to produce over 15 tonnes per hour of hydrogen for use in the production of cleaner burning transportation fuels; 
•a cryogenic syngas purification system to create a mixture of approximately 14 tonnes per hour of purified hydrogen and carbon monoxide;
•an air separation unit to produce nitrogen and oxygen for the refinery and petrochemical complex; and
•a gas turbine to produce power for the Air Products facilities.
