Specialty gas supplier Linde has expanded its plant turnaround, maintenance, repair and overhaul, and pipeline services capabilities to include the Gulf Coast region from a new facility located in Baytown, TX. With a secure supply of industrial gases from its recently completed air separation units in La Porte, the new facility complements Linde’s Northeast site located in West Middlesex, PA.
“These two locations allow Linde to provide services to customers in the two major areas of activity in the U.S. – natural gas production in the Northeast and petrochemical and refining in Texas and Louisiana,” said Brian Kubalik, program manager for Chemistry and Energy, Linde Americas.
Using its network of air separation units and strategically placed service yards, Linde’s mobile response teams provide the industrial gases or water, and high-pressure pumping equipment for pneumatic hydrostatic pressure testing and nitrogen purging, inerting and displacement to LNG for backup natural gas supply and leak testing, and plant commissioning.
The company’s equipment includes high-rate nitrogen pumper trucks, 4,000-gallon nitrogen mini-transport trucks, 16,000-gallon nitrogen portable storage vessels and hydrostatic pumping trailers.
