Air Products, Lehigh Valley, Pa., plans to build, own and operate a new liquid nitrogen production facility in Mooreland, Okla., which will have an approximate 250 t/day capacity. The company expects the expansion will strengthen its position in supplying the region’s oilfield services market. The Mooreland plant is scheduled to be on stream in 2012.

"The plant will both assist in meeting increased liquid-product demand and enhance our responsiveness level to customers for needed services,” says Nelson Squires, vice president of North America Merchant Gases.
