New air separation plant opens in North Dakota

MATHESON has just finished construction on a large capacity air separation unit in Dickinson, North Dakota. The plant, Dickinson ASU, is intended to fulfil the growing demand for merchant liquid nitrogen and oxygen in the region.

The new facility is now fully operational and serving customers in the region. Dickinson ASU has two phases of deployment and this completion of the first phase shows good progression. The second phase is already underway and should be complete in August 2014. This is part of MATHESON’s ongoing strategic expansion plan to invest capital in growth markets and strengthen the reliability of their existing network. The plant produces liquid nitrogen, which is used in the process of shale oil and gas exploration.

“This new Air Separation Unit will help support the strong economic growth in North Dakota and surrounding areas and allow MATHESON to better support our current merchant liquid customers,” stated Nigel McMullen, MATHESON senior vice president.
