Air Products Announces Opening at its Doe Canyon Helium Plant

Air Products held a grand opening at its new Doe Canyon helium production facility in Colorado. The Doe Canyon helium plant is the only one in the world extracting helium from a gas stream composed primarily of carbon dioxide (CO2). The helium from this new facility further diversifies Air Products' supply chain to ensure a reliable and stable supply of product for its customers. Much of the helium produced in the United States comes from the United States Bureau of Land Management (BLM) system, however, the BLM system is in decline, and eventually that storage supply will be depleted. At the same time, the world's demand for helium is likely to continue to grow and is why new sources of helium are needed. The purified helium at the new Colorado facility will be liquefied on-site for subsequent delivery to Air Products' customers. The plant is expected to produce up to 230 million standard cubic feet of helium per year, replacing more than 15% of the current BLM reserve helium supply as that system declines. Most of the helium produced around the world is a by-product of natural gas (methane) processing. However, not all natural gas fields contain helium, and in fact very few gas fields have high enough helium concentrations to make it economical for extraction. In this case, the natural gas is composed of primarily CO2, and it contains high enough concentrations of helium to make it economical for extraction. Air Products'Colorado facility will use a new technology process to produce pure helium from the CO2 stream. Kinder Morgan, operator of the Doe Canyon Unit, supplies this CO2 to the Permian Basin in West Texas, where the CO2 is used for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). Air Products will extract the helium and return the CO2 to Kinder Morgan for its intended EOR use.

Air Products Signs Second Deal to Supply Integrated Oxy-Fuel Solution to Techpack Solutions in Korea

Air Products announced it has been selected by Techpack Solutions in Korea to supply its integrated oxy-fuel solution. It is Air Products' second project to support this leading Korean container glass maker to reduce emissions and improve energy efficiency and productivity. The integrated solution encompasses Air Products' oxy-fuel combustion system, including Cleanfire® HRiTM oxy-fuel burners and an automatic flow control skid. The company will also install a PRISM® vacuum swing adsorption (VSA) oxygen generator to supply reliable and economical on-site oxygen used to power the oxy-fuel burners for melting glass. Oxy-fuel technology is proven to bring multiple benefits such as over 50% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions, 10-20% in energy savings, about 25% increase in productivity, reduction of capital, and improvement in efficiency and glass quality. Air Products is a leader in oxy-fuel technology with over 50 years of experience and offers integrated solutions, from gas supply to combustion systems, technology, customized control systems, technical and design expertise, commissioning service, safety and site training, and maintenance contracts and project management.
