Air Products' Oklahoma Facility Welcomed By Oilfield Services Industry

Stocks in this article: APD

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Strengthening its position in the oilfield services industry with a new liquid nitrogen production facility in Mooreland, Oklahoma, Air Products (NYSE: APD) today held an Open House for customers and other guests to celebrate the plant's onstream status. The new facility will produce approximately 250 tons per day of liquid nitrogen and increases Air Products' existing leadership position in supplying the region's oilfield services industry.  The new plant will focus service on Woodward, Oklahoma and surrounding oil and gas producing areas in the state, and in Kansas and Texas.

"The decision to build this new merchant facility here demonstrates our commitment to the oilfield services industry in this region, and the response from customers has been strong.  In addition to this plant, we have proactively taken actions to optimize the supply chain for customers and reduce their ancillary costs. The new plant and improved customer service and logistics will assist in meeting increased liquid nitrogen demand for the region's growing oilfield services industry," said Nelson Squires, vice president and general manager, North America Merchant Gases at Air Products.

Squires also noted that beyond the new plant, Air Products has established several additional support and product offerings for the regional oilfield services industry including:

  • designing the plant for continuous operations and 24/7 customer product pick-up;
  • creating a team of oilfield customer service representatives who work in tandem with a team of logistics specialists for the region to provide oilfield services customers 24/7 coverage;
  • establishing permanent product staging areas close to field locations, and an increasing fleet of mobile storage vessels to locate product directly in the field and close to the wellhead;
  • increasing a truck fleet designed for off-road conditions with sleeper cabs for driver layovers; and
  • retro-fitting product trailers with a state-of-the-art electronic pressure limiting system to reduce the risk of overpressure conditions while delivering to low pressure oilfield services vessels.

The Mooreland facility is also an FDA certified plant and will supply nitrogen to other local industries such as food and metals processing.

Air Products has supplied nitrogen and oxygen for upstream oil and gas production and processing for more than 40 years utilizing a variety of supply modes along with the most comprehensive package of value-added technologies, services and equipment available.
