Hydrogen supply performance benchmarks are high. Innovation can help improve costs and refinery economics. Gasification-derived hydrogen can be supplied with world-class performance provided that a disciplined approach is taken. The economics for gasification-derived hydrogen are always interesting but challenging, particularly as situational factors may often be involved. Under appropriate circumstances and with the benefit of new technology development, CO2 capture for storage may make the economics near-compelling. Outsourcing hydrogen supply in refineries is established and widely accepted. Read More ›
Hydrogen demand growing for refinery expansions and new refinery projects, Steam reforming and gasification will be used to produce the required hydrogen. Air Liquide and Lurgi have broad experience for both hydrogen and oxygen. Read More ›

Modelling optimisation of process and design parameters for minimising natural gas consumption in hydrogen production by steam reforming.
Knowledge of hydrogen producing and consuming process technologies, system analyses and process controls can be leveraged to optimise hydrogen use.
Oxygen enhanced reforming: a low capital cost retrofit solution to debottleneck H2 plant production capacity
Oxgen enhanced reforming(OER) technology can efficiently and reliably expand H2 plant production capacity by enriching the SMR combustion air with oxygen. An OER retrofit can be installed at a low capital investment with a quick turnaround and minimal plant downtime.
Utilisation of refinery offgas for hydrogen production. Three basic schemes of ROG integration into a steam reformer plant were investigated. These schemes are considered at different hydrogen concentrations.
Case study of a hydrogen complex discusses interaction of hydrogen processing steps with overall refinery productivity. Hydrogen partial pressures, pinch options and other important operating parameters influence economics.
