It will also integrate this project with an ExxonMobil plant.
ExxonMobil Asia Pacific has signed an agreement with engineering firm Linde to support the multi-billion dollar expansion of its integrated manufacturing complex in Singapore.
Linde will invest US$1.4b to expand its existing gasification complex at Jurong Island, integrating it with ExxonMobil's project to produce and supply additional hydrogen and synthesis gas. The project will include building and operating four additional gasifiers, a 1,200 metric ton per day air separation plant, as well as Linde’s proprietary downstream gas processing units and sulphur recovery plants.
Linde’s gasification complex will produce and supply hydrogen and synthesis gas to ExxonMobil by upgrading the heavy residue feedstock from its new facilities.
It will also invest in a dedicated set of pipelines for the transfer of feedstocks and products between ExxonMobil and Linde facilities. Upon completion, the investment will also supply hydrogen, carbon monoxide and synthesis gas to other customers on Jurong Island and quadruple Linde’s present capacity.
Linde’s engineering division will design and build the new facility. Construction is expected to start in the second half of 2019, with start-up anticipated in 2023.
