Air Products to extend Singapore gas pipeline hub
Air Products plans to further extend its existing industrial gas pipeline network to the Tembusu area from its existing pipeline network in the Sakra area on Jurong Island, Singapore, to support the growth of chemical and petrochemical customers with cost-effective and reliable industrial gas supply.
Air Products has signed a contract to supply both gaseous and
liquid nitrogen to Prime Evolue Singapore, the company said on
Air Products will also further extend its existing industrial
gas pipeline network to the Tembusu area from its existing
pipeline network in the Sakra area on Jurong Island, Singapore,
to support the growth of chemical and petrochemical customers with
cost-effective and reliable industrial gas supply.
Strategically positioned as the heart of Singapore's energy and
chemical industry, Jurong Island is home to more than 95
leading global petroleum, petrochemical and specialty
chemicals companies. It provides well-developed "plug-and-play"
infrastructure where companies can save capital costs through
use of shared facilities and utilities to reap
synergies through product integration.
Air Products has been serving petrochemical customers on the
island since 1997 through its air separation plant, which can produce
250 tpd of gases. The pipeline extension further strengthens
the company's supply position to meet the increasing market
"This latest pipeline expansion on Jurong Island is part
of Air Products' long-standing commitment to drive growth in
energy, environmental and emerging markets through investment,"
said Philip C. Sproger, vice president and general manager of
the Asia tonnage gases business for Air Products.
"Singapore's energy and chemical industry plays an important
role on the Asian as well as the world stage," he added. "We
will continue to pursue opportunities to support its
development and help customers be more productive, energy
efficient and sustainable with our technology and experience."
Air Products marks its 16th anniversary in the Singapore market
this year, noting that it has established long-term
relationships with a mix of local and multinational companies.
In addition to the air separation plant on Jurong Island, the
company currently operates a helium and specialty gas plant in
Senoko and an epoxy additives and polyamide plant in Gul
Crescent, supplying a wide array of industries in the country
and other Asian markets.
