OCI to Start Construction of New World-Scale Hydrogen-Based Blue Ammonia Facility in Texas

Vinson & Elkins is advising OCI Clean Ammonia LLC in relation to the development of a world-scale 1.1 million ton per annum blue ammonia project in Beaumont, Texas, based on KBR technology.

The US Gulf is a strategic location that allows the facility to serve both the US market and export clean ammonia as a hydrogen carrier to hydrogen deficit markets around the world such as Europe and Asia, as well as catering for expected significant demand from new applications including power and shipping fuels. The blue ammonia will be delivered to customers using future zero carbon ammonia-fueled engine ships, leveraging OCI’s global infrastructure.

The V&E team was led by partners Andrew Nealon, Alan Alexander and Kaam Sahely and associate Louise Fischel-Bock. Other key team members include senior associate Stephanie Coco, associates Zach Parker and Alistair Wishart and trainee solicitor Alex Lee; partners Natan Levya, Todd Way, Peita Menon and senior associates Curt Wimberly and Paul Harrington; partner Dave Johnson; counsel Rajesh Patel; and paralegal Shannon Spainhour.
