New nitrogen facility to be built in Dawson Creek

Major industrial gas supplier Air Liquide Canada announced today that it will build a new nitrogen facility to service oil and gas companies in northern B.C. and Alberta. The approximately $60 million Air Separation Unit will be built in two phases, with the first set to be operational in the summer of 2012.

The second phase is scheduled to be operational the following summer.

"We are positioning ourselves to better serve existing customers and to capture new business opportunities in both British Columbia and Alberta, especially with regards to extraction of natural gas," says Luc Doyon, President and CEO, Air Liquide Canada. "The economic potential throughout this region is significant, and we are prepared to meet the growing demand for nitrogen to develop these important domestic energy resources."

Nitrogen is used in oil and gas drilling operations to help decrease water consumption.
