Linde North America will invest more than $200 million to build a large air separation unit (ASU), a new gasification train, and supporting equipment and facilities in La Porte, Texas, USA. The state-of-the art plants are scheduled to come on-stream in the first quarter of 2015.

The ASU will be the largest operated by Linde in the U.S. The air gases oxygen and nitrogen produced by the new ASU will supply the gasification assets at the La Porte site.

The new gasifier will convert natural gas into syngas and constituent products such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide which are used to produce methanol, downstream chemicals, and cleaner transportation fuels. The syngas products will be served by pipeline to a key customer. The addition of the new gasification plant will create the world’s largest gas-based partial oxidation complex for the production of syngas products for petrochemicals.
