Air Liquide Arabia announced today the startup of the Middle East’s first hydrogen pipeline network in the industrial city of Jubail, on the east coast of Saudi Arabia.
Designed to transport large volumes of hydrogen to customers in both Jubail I and Jubail II, the network contributes to the development of the downstream industry in the Kingdom.
With a total length of over 21 km, the Air Liquide Arabia hydrogen pipeline provides large organisations, as well as small and medium enterprises in industries such as refining and petrochemicals.
The ALAR Hydrogen Pipeline Network brings hydrogen capabilities to Jubail. For this project, Air Liquide Arabia deployed the expertise of the Large Industries business line of the Air Liquide Group in building, owning, operating and maintaining hydrogen networks - these same capabilities are demonstrated by Air Liquide in many of the world’s largest industrial basins such as the US Gulf Coast, Northern Europe and Asia.
