We supply industrial and specialty gases in a wide array of volumes and purities, along with related application technologies and services.
Oil & Gas
Our integrated capabilities contribute to the success of our customers at all stages of offshore and onshore production, from exploration to refining and distribution. We provide a wide range of gases through dedicated supply modes and innovative packaging.
One of our many achievements in the region is the successful commissioning of a large-scale Steam Methane Reformer unit for the YASREF refinery in Yanbu, Saudi Arabia, with a total hydrogen production capacity of 340,000 Nm3/hour. This is the first time in the Middle East that the hydrogen production for such a large refinery has been outsourced to a third party.
We have extensive expertise in metal fabrication across industries that produce steel, non-ferrous metal structures, vessels, cars, aircrafts, and others.
Via our ALKIG affiliate, we deliver reliable and competitive gas solutions to our customers, supplied via cylinders, bulk, pipeline distribution, and on-site production units. Our solutions cover three critical stages in the manufacturing cycle.
Cutting of metallic raw materials
Flame cutting using FLAMAL™, a range of oxygen and fuel gas (BMCG) that improve safety, quality and productivity
Laser cutting using LASAL™ to improve performance and reliability for high performance jobs

ALNAT™, the range of metal heat treatment solutions encompassing gas, related handling equipment and services for value-added processes.
Glass is made in furnaces at very high temperatures with a process that requires constant improvement to meet the energy efficiency and environmental challenges posed by the manufacturing cycle.
Air Liquide provides solutions along all stages of the glass production process, from melting to forming end products through its ALKIG affiliate. To complete our offer, we deliver a competitive oxygen supply adapted to the needs of our customers, particularly through energy-efficient on-site oxygen generation systems.
Today, the metallurgy and glass industries are facing the dual challenges of making furnaces more energy and cost-efficient while reducing polluting emissions. In ALKIG, we support these industries with proven and patented combustion technologies based on burning fuel.
Before a finished product can be packaged and sold, defects must be removed. We supply oxy-natural based gas and oxy-hydrogen based combustion technologies to polish the product surface and remove surface imperfections.
Glass edge melting
After the forming and before the annealing of glass articles, this operation aims to eliminate the cutting edges of products or marks made by the two half moulds on the article surfaces.
Carbon black deposit
Through deposition of a carbon black layer on the internal mould surface that is in contact with glass, carbon black deposit is an alternative method for mould lubrication.
Industries must reduce their pollution emissions and improve their processes for maximum reuse of water and materials, while complying with the reinforcement of environmental and sanitary regulations.
At Air Liquide, via our ALKIG affiliate, we master applications using gas technology to treat water, recycle metal, recover solvents, analyse air quality, and recover waste.
Carbon dioxide is used for calco-carbonic equilibrium management for remineralisation and pH control at desalination plants. Advanced treatment processes to answer stringent regulatory standards require oxidation and disinfection properties of oxygen.
The introduction of pure oxygen into biological basins with gas injectors, instead of using the traditional air blowing technology, helps industries comply with today’s strict regulations regarding wastewater discharge.
With innovative ozone (O3) solutions developed by Air Liquide, the biological sludge production and the energy and consumption of reactive products are reduced. Our customers manage their activated sludge process in a more efficient manner and produce 30% to 40% less sludge.
Replacing liquid chemical acids with the dissolution of carbon dioxide (CO2) in cooling water helps prevent or eliminate scale in the cooling circuits. Our expertise allows us to provide the most adapted treatment based on water characteristics and chemical treatments.
Food and Beverage
Air Liquide has developed innovative ALIGALTM food-grade gas solutions, compliant with HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) in order to meet the most rigorous health and safety standards. Whether in freezing, modified atmosphere packaging, product quality and flavour preservation, carbonation, inerting and/or throughout the processing and distribution chains, our goal in ALKIG is to guarantee the safety and high quality of the products for the end users, while increasing the productivity of our partners, preserving the quality and extending the product shelf life.
Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP): to enhance appearance preserve organoleptic product’s characteristics while extending shelf life
Freezing and chilling: to enhance natural taste while minimizing dehydration
Cold transportation: keeping chilled and frozen products at the right temperature during transportation involving long distances and hot weather
Purging and inerting: protecting raw materials (concentrates, edible oils…) from oxidation during the storage and the processing
