Air Products has had a presence in the Middle East for over 50 years, primarily selling liquefied natural gas (LNG) and air separation (ASU) equipment into the region. Over the last decade, Air Products has made several investments in the merchant and packaged gases business in the United Arab Emirates and the Sultanate of Oman. More recently, Air Products has grown through large projects and initiatives, completing the world’s largest ASU complex at Jazan, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; announcing plans to form an integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) joint venture at Jazan; and building our core competencies in the region through our world-class technology center in the Dhahran Techno Valley.
