Abstract

The air separation industrial gas market (oxygen, nitrogen, argon) generally requires products at pressures below 500 psig (35 barg). Air separation companies supply oxygen to a number of refinery customers at pressures of 1,000 - 1,200 psig (68 – 83 barg). Energy project developers have recently expressed interest for the supply of gaseous oxygen at pressures over 2,000 psig (138 barg) with some applications approaching 5,000 psig (345 barg).
