New Plant to supply Evonik Complex in Singapore
Guildford, UK, - Linde announced it has started up a new gas production facility supplying methane, hydrogen and carbon dioxide to Evonik Industries' second world-scale methionine complex on Jurong Island in Singapore. The new plant complements an existing facility which has been supplying these gases to Evonik's first methionine complex in Singapore since 2014.
The new, integrated facility incorporates Linde's advanced technologies which increase plant efficiency, reliability and environmental sustainability. This plant adds to Linde's footprint in Jurong Island, ensuring it is well-positioned to be the preferred industrial gas supplier to Singapore's dominant petrochemical hub.

Sanjiv Lamba, Executive Vice President, CEO, Linde Asia-Pacific, said, "Over the last several years, the strategic partnership between Linde and Evonik has continued to strengthen given our long-standing reliability and focus on productivity and sustainability. We are proud that Evonik chose to recognize Linde's superior technology offerings and operational capabilities by extending our existing relationship in line with their own growth."
Peter Meinshausen, President, Evonik Asia Pacific South, said, "The completion and startup of Linde's second integrated facility with Evonik in Singapore is yet another milestone in our long-term, successful collaboration. Linde already has a strong track record of delivering a reliable supply to our existing complex in Singapore, and several other facilities around the world. This, combined with Linde's technology and engineering capabilities, gives us great confidence in expanding our strategic partnership and we look forward to continuing this for years to come."
Evonik's Methionine complexes produce DL-methionine, an essential amino acid. As a feed additive, it contributes to the efficient, healthy and environmentally friendly nutrition of livestock, particularly poultry and swine. This makes it an important component of ensuring a sustainable animal protein supply for the world's growing population.
Editorial Comment: The Future of FLNG: Less is More?
Global LNG export capacity is expected to increase by 45% between 2017 and 2022, to more than 400 metric MMtpy, with 90% of the new capacity coming from sanctioned projects in the U.S. and Australia. By 2050, this capacity is anticipated to exceed 700 MMtpy. Regasification capacity is anticipated to increase even more sharply.
Executive Viewpoint: Back to production: Where we’re going, we don’t need pipelines
What if a cost-effective way existed to extract and distribute natural gas, regardless of proximity to pipeline, and bring those assets back to production? What if the industry went in a direction that did not need pipelines? For those looking to monetize unproductive natural gas assets or bring unproductive wells back to production, it would be revolutionary.
Regional Focus:Australia to boost LNG exports despite domestic gas shortage
Australia is planning further increases in LNG production and exports over the next decade, despite quickly depleting reserves and a looming supply shortage in the domestic market.
