Air Products (NYSE: APD), and its subsidiary Air Products Canada Ltd., today announced the signing of a long-term agreement to supply North West Redwater Partnership with approximately 25 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of hydrogen for North West’s Sturgeon Refinery near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The hydrogen supply to North West will come both from the recently announced new world-scale hydrogen production plant Air Products Canada will build in Scotford, Canada, and from Air Products Canada’s existing Heartland Hydrogen Pipeline. The hydrogen supply to North West is expected to begin in 2016, soon after commercialization of the new Scotford plant.

Air Products plans to build, own and operate a new hydrogen production plant adjacent to the Shell Scotford refinery and upgrader complex in Scotford, Alberta, Canada. The new facility will produce over 150 MMSCFD of hydrogen and will be connected to Air Products Canada’s Heartland Hydrogen Pipeline system, which is also fed by two existing hydrogen production plants in Edmonton. The two Edmonton plants produce a combined 180 MMSCFD of hydrogen and supply refiners, upgraders, chemical processors and other industries in the Alberta Industrial Heartland region.
