Air Liquide Arabia (ALAR) began commercial operations at its pipeline network in Yanbu, by supplying hydrogen to SAMREF, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Mobil Yanbu Refining Company Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corp.
SAMREF represents ALAR’s first customer on the pipeline network which will also start supplying 3 other major industrial companies in Yanbu Industrial City in the coming months.
The Saudi-based gas solutions and tech provider will produce the hydrogen supplied to SAMREF from its hydrogen production site located on the premises of YASREF refinery, a joint venture between Aramco and China Petrochemical Corporation (SINOPEC).
“We are committed to expand further our investments and deliver further synergies around the circular economy created by the hydrogen pipeline infrastructure,” Francois-Xavier Haulle, general manager at ALAR, said.
