Alar’s hydrogen pipeline goes online

Company News

Air Liquide Arabia (Alar), one of Saudi Arabia’s leading hydrogen, gas solutions and technologies providers, has kickstarted commercial operations at its flagship hydrogen pipeline network in Yanbu, on the West Coast of Saudi Arabia.

Samref, one of the Middle East’s leading refineries and a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Mobil Yanbu Refining Company (a wholly owned subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation) is the 16-km pipeline network’s first customer to be supplied. Alar will also start supplying to three other major industrial companies in Yanbu Industrial City in the coming months.

The event is a key milestone for Alar’s global-scale hydrogen production plant located on the premises of Yasref refinery, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and China Petrochemical Corporation (Sinopec).

Commenting on the significant milestone, Francois-Xavier Haulle, General Manager at Air Liquide Arabia, says: "Alar keeps executing its plan in Saudi Arabia and is delivering value daily to its customers. I am grateful to Yasref and Samref for their trust and to the Royal Commission for its continuous support."
