Hydroprocessing in the oil refining industry
Hydroprocessing in the oil refining industry includes processes such as hydrogenation, hydrocracking and hydrotreating. These processes are used in producing today’s energy and transportation fuels. As a refiner, your operation may be faced with using new sources of heavier, sour crude while facing stricter environmental regulations. That’s where Air Products’ industrial gas solutions come into play. We understand that no two refineries are alike and can be faced with different customer demands. As a global leading producer of on-purpose hydrogen, we have a portfolio of hydrogen supply technology to serve a broad range of users from bulk delivery to tonnage size ranging from pipeline or from a dedicated plant located at or near a customer’s facility. We own, operate and manage a large fleet of hydrogen plants and can provide custom designs for your requirements, which can include steam, cogenerated power, feedstock flexibility, utility synergies, and additional hydrogen needs. No problem if your demand is smaller. We can supply small scale hydrogen users (<5000 bpd hydrotreaters) via liquid hydrogen delivery or by small onsite generation.

Gas Supply Options
APEX Temporary Emergency Gas Services
Short-term or emergency industrial gas supply for start-ups, peak demand periods, planned or unplanned maintenance activities, and plant or pipeline turnarounds.
Delivered by truck and stored on your site either as a liquid in cryogenic tanks or as a gas in high-pressure tubes based on your volume, desired pressure, purity level, flow rate, and operating pattern.
On-site Gas Generation
On-site gas generation helps sustainability-minded customers lower their carbon footprint, boost energy efficiency, increase throughput, enhance end product quality, and improve environmental performance.
Located in major industrial locations around the world, pipelines offer customers with large product demands a range of benefits, including reliable, safe and flexible supply in a cost-effective way.
PRISM Membrane separators generate gas onsite for applications like nitrogen generation, air dehydration, hydrogen recovery, biogas upgrading, and the generation of oxygen enriched air.
