For customers who consume very large volumes of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen or argon each day, our pipeline supply systems may be just what you need. Flexible and economical, Praxair’s pipeline supply is ideal for large volume and continuous-use customers located close to our pipeline operation facilities.
Globally Praxair operates seven hydrogen pipeline systems that supply our customers with nearly one billion standard cubic feet of hydrogen each day. Praxair’s U.S. Gulf Coast hydrogen pipeline system, one of the largest in the world, spans approximately 300 miles from Freeport, Texas to Lake Charles, Louisiana. Integrated into this system is the industry’s first and only commercial hydrogen storage cavern. This storage cavern enables us to meet customers’ planned and unplanned peak demands and allows our system to respond instantaneously to changes in customer requirements. Our Pipeline Business Center controls and monitors each of our pipeline systems to ensure critical customer process demands are met — such as purity, flow rates and pressures.
