Chevron taps Praxair for large hydrogen plant

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Oct. 26 -- Chevron Products Co. has completed an agreement with Praxair Inc. for a hydrogen plant at its 240,000-b/d Richmond, Calif., refinery that the technology provider says will be the largest it has ever built.

Praxair, Danbury, Conn., will use reformer technology and engineering and construction services of Lurgi AG for the two-train, 260-MMcfd complex.

Lurgi has engineered and built more than 25 hydrogen plants worldwide and more than 100 steam reforming units for the production of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, or synthesis gas.

The Richmond hydrogen plant is due on stream in 2008. Praxair will operate the facility. It will build a pipeline network to connect the plant with the Chevron refinery and other refineries in northern California.
