The Kochi Industrial Gas Complex of Air Products, a world leader in industrial gases megaproject development and execution, has been supplying syngas to the Propylene Derivatives Petrochemical Project (PDPP) at the Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd’s (BPCL’s) Kochi Refinery.

This is the company’s second supply contract with BPCL at Kochi. Air Products already operates a world-scale industrial gas complex to support the BPCL Integrated Refinery Expansion Project (IREP) at the same location.

Commenting on the development, Dr. Samir J. Serhan, chief operating officer of Air Products, said that “Air Products is privileged to supply syngas and aid BPCL’s entry in the petrochemical market. I am proud of the teams who have shown exceptional resilience and dedication during the COVID-19 pandemic. The work they have done to support this facility shows how persistently we exhibit our core values of safety, speed, simplicity, and self-confidence in this region and around the globe. Kochi is a shining example of our ability to come together as a team, wherever we are in the world, to execute large-scale, essential industrial gas projects for our valued customers.”

“We are happy to continue our association with Air Products and congratulate the Air Products team for their commitment to safety, timely and reliable supply of products to the PDPP. The Syngas supplied by Air Products is a critical component for PDPP and will enable BPCL’s entry in the Propylene Derivative Petrochemical market in a big way. This represents a significant multi-national company investment in India and support for India’s vision to become self-reliant. PDPP will produce niche products like Acrylic acid, Oxo-alcohols and Acrylates utilizing industrial gases supplied by Air Products,” said Sanjay Khanna, executive director of BPCL Kochi Refinery.

Adding his appreciation, Anand Chordia, Managing Director of Air Products India, said “the supply of syngas at the Kochi Industrial Gas Complex reinforces Air Products India’s capabilities to execute large-scale projects indigenously through detailed engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and through to reliable supply.”
