Correction: In the ICIS news story headlined "Airgas joint venture to build hydrogen plant in Sichuan, China" dated 8 June 2010, please read the headline as "Air Products…" instead of "Airgas…."
Please read in the first, second, third, fourth, fifth and six paragraphs Air Products instead of Airgas. A corrected story follows.

HOUSTON (ICIS news)--Air Products’s Sichuan-based joint venture company in China plans to build a hydrogen plant for PetroChina’s refinery and petrochemical plants, the industrial gases producer said on Tuesday.

The steam methane reformer (SMR) would produce more than 90m cubic feet/day of hydrogen and would also produce synthesis gas (syngas) to support PetroChina’s facilities in Sichuan, Air Products said.

Air Products said it has targeted the plant to be on stream in early 2012.

The planned hydrogen plant was the first time that a state-owned refinery in China has outsourced its hydrogen requirements, Air Products said.

Technip would provide the design and construction expertise for steam reformers for the project while Air Products would provide the gas separation technology, the company said.

Air Products did not disclose the cost of the project.
