MURRAY HILL and NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., Aug 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The gases
and engineering group, Linde, announced that it has moved into new offices in
Houston to house several of its groups. With the recently announced $200
million investment to build a large, state-of-the art air separation unit
(ASU), a new gasification train and supporting equipment and facilities in La
Porte, Texas, the new offices provide space to support activities surrounding
the project. The offices also allow expansion of engineering and construction
activities to support other projects managed by Linde Engineering North
America Inc.


The new 12,000 square-foot office, located at 3700 West Sam Houston Highway
South (just off the 8 Loop) houses sales, business development, and
construction activities for Linde Engineering North America Inc. and Linde
Gas. The offices allow expansion to support a variety of projects managed by
Linde Engineering North America Inc.

"Establishing a multi-discipline office in Houston enhances our presence in
the Houston Ship Channel area which is a rapidly growing market for our
products and services," said Pat Murphy, president of Linde North America. "It
provides an opportunity for Linde to provide our customers with the best
service Linde has to offer."

Bruce Hensinger, CEO and President of Linde Engineering North America Inc,
said "Linde Engineering North America has supplied technologies to the
refining and petrochemical industries in the Gulf region for many years. This
expansion affirms our commitment to our current and prospective customers in
the region."

The ASU will be the largest operated by Linde in the U.S. and the addition of
a new gasification plant will create the world's largest gas-based partial
oxidation complex for the production of syngas products for petrochemicals.
