Beaumont Site for $1.8B Clean Hydrogen, Nitrogen Plant
OCI is a world leader in manufacturing and distributing products needed for fertilizers and fuels. Linde is a leader in supplying clean hydrogen and nitrogen for those products. They’ve formed a partnership where Linde will supply clean additives to OCI’s new blue ammonia facility under development in Beaumont, Texas. Linde will supply OCI with clean hydrogen by sequestering more than 1.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. Linde will also use its extensive pipeline network to provide clean hydrogen to existing and new customers in the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Linde’s total investment will be approximately $1.8 billion, and OCI’s total investment cost is expected to be below $1 billion, including spending on upsized utilities and available land to allow for doubling capacity in the future. The project is expected to start up in 2025.
