Linde is expanding its La Porte, Texas, facility, effectively doubling the facility’s merchant liquid production capacity. Starting up in 2024, the increased capacity will help Linde to meet growing demand from the petrochemicals, clean energy, manufacturing, food, and aerospace sectors on the U.S. Gulf Coast. It will also supply Linde’s existing Gulf Coast pipeline system, which includes nitrogen and oxygen pipelines extending from the Houston ship channel south to Freeport, Texas.
“This investment will further strengthen our robust supply capabilities in the U.S. Gulf Coast, allowing Linde to take advantage of growing demand,” said Jeff Barnhard, Vice President of South Region, Linde. “This project provides significant productivity benefits by building on the unique infrastructure Linde has already established in the U.S. Gulf Coast.”
