ExxonMobil taps Air Products for nitrogen recovery unit for Hawkins development

Air Products (APD) will provide its nitrogen recovery unit (NRU) and cryogenic gas processing equipment for an ExxonMobil (XOM) project in Hawkins, Texas. The new NRU plant will be operated by ExxonMobil and will process approximately 140 million standard cubic feet per day of gas. The unit will recover natural gas for pipeline sale and produce nitrogen for re-injection into the reservoir to enable enhanced oil and gas recovery. 

Air Products will deliver the NRU plant equipment in late 2010, with operations at Hawkins targeted to commence in late 2011. 

"Air Products is very pleased to have been selected by ExxonMobil for this important project. With global energy demand increasing, we believe that our technologies provide solutions for enhanced oil recovery projects. We look forward to further demonstrating the benefits Air Products delivers to the energy industry," said Tom Mutchler, general manager, Worldwide Equipment for Air Products.
