Industrial Gas Application in Chemical and Petroleum Industry

We serve a range of customers - from oil and gas production, through refineries and petrochemicals, to pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals. Much of the new activity in these industries is taking place in the emerging economies, particularly in the Asia/Pacific region.

Almost every product that we produce is supplied to customers in the chemical and petroleum industries, from specialty gases for analytical instruments to the very large on-site air separation units. The largest part of the market is the supply of large quantities of gases either from dedicated production plants or pipeline networks under long-term contracts.

Petroleum refineries represent a particularly dynamic segment for US. Refiners must now deal with heavy crude and higher sulphur levels. At the same time both local and global environmental pressures are growing to make further cuts in pollution from both products and processes. We have a number of products, applications and processes that enable refiners to meet these challenges.
