Alberta hydrogen pipeline on tap

Air Products and its subsidiary Air Products Canada Ltd. has announced that its Heartland Hydrogen Pipeline in Alberta, Canada has been commercialized and is supplying customers linked to the 30mi pipeline with product. Hydrogen is a major feedstock for bitumen upgrading and refining and is very important in enabling the production of cleaner burning transportation fuels. The pipeline was located in this region to support the continued operation and development of multiple industries in the area including Dow at its polyethylene operations in Fort Saskatchewan, and Evonik Degussa which will use the hydrogen feed at its hydrogen peroxide facility in Gibbons, Alberta. In March 2010, Air Products had announced long-term hydrogen supply contracts via pipeline with Shell Canada Energy, Sherritt International Corp., and Williams Energy (Canada) Inc. Air Products received approval in 2009 from the Alberta Energy Resource Conservation Board for the project serving refiners, upgraders, chemical processors and other industries.
