Linde announced today it has signed a long-term agreement with ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. to support the latest multi-billion dollar expansion of the company’s integrated manufacturing complex in Singapore. This will be the single largest sale of gas contract in the history of the newly merged Linde and of its legacy companies.
Linde will invest US$1.4 billion to expand its existing gasification complex at Jurong Island, integrating it with ExxonMobil’s project to produce and supply additional hydrogen and synthesis gas. The project will include building and operating four additional gasifiers, a 1,200 metric ton per day air separation plant, as well as Linde’s proprietary downstream gas processing units and sulfur recovery plants. Linde’s gasification complex will produce and supply hydrogen and synthesis gas to ExxonMobil by upgrading the heavy residue feedstock from its new facilities.
Linde will also invest in a dedicated set of pipelines for the transfer of feedstocks and products between ExxonMobil and Linde facilities. Upon completion, the investment will also supply hydrogen, carbon monoxide and synthesis gas to other customers on Jurong Island and quadruple Linde’s present capacity.
Linde’s Engineering division will design and build the new facility. Construction is expected to start in the second half of 2019, with start-up anticipated in 2023.
