Air Liquide and Shell Chemicals have signed renewal contracts for the supply of oxygen, nitrogen, steam and electricity to Shell’s Scotford facility near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada.

To support the contract renewal, Air Liquide will invest in its Scotford site to enhance its operational efficiency, enabling the Tier One company to provide long-term value, while continuing to supply the Shell Chemicals facility.

“Air Liquide is pleased to be reinforcing its relationship with Shell, a leading global company and long-standing strategic customer of the group,” said Michael J. Graff, Executive Vice-President and Executive Committee Member of the Air Liquide Group.

“The renewal of these major contracts demonstrates trust and confidence in Air Liquide to create value and deliver long-term performance to customers.”

The renewal of the contracts reflects the long-standing relationship between Air Liquide and Shell and illustrates Air Liquide’s commitment to the industry in Alberta.

With the additional investment, Air Liquide’s Scotford complex will be able to support future growth in the region, illustrating the group’s strategy to develop in key industrial basins and create efficiencies.
