Praxair, Inc. (NYSE: PX) has begun supplying BP’s refinery complex in Whiting, Indiana, with hydrogen from its new, state-of-the-art hydrogen facility. The two steam methane reformers have a total capacity of 200 million standard cubic feet per day. BP uses hydrogen to produce ultra-low-sulfur gasoline and diesel fuels.

The facility was fully designed, engineered, procured and built by Praxair’s hydrogen engineering group. “This facility demonstrates Praxair’s world-class hydrogen plant-design and construction capabilities, using advanced construction techniques and the latest energy-efficient technologies,” said Dan Yankowski, president of Praxair’s Global Hydrogen business unit.
