The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has awarded a contract for liquid nitrogen and liquid oxygen to a New Jersey-based industrial gases company.

Linde LLC, which has its U.S. headquarters in Murray Hill, said in a news release Monday that it will supply more than 360,000 tons of liquid nitrogen and approximately 64,000 tons of liquid oxygen for six NASA research and space flight centers.

NASA said in the release that the contract has a maximum term of five years and a potential value of $23 million.

"We are very pleased with this award from NASA,” Cliff Caldwell, vice president and general manager, Bulk Markets & Applications for Linde LLC, said in Linde’s release. “With more than 30 air separation plants producing oxygen, nitrogen and argon, we have the capacity to serve NASA's demanding needs."

The six facilities receiving the liquefied gases are: Glenn Research Center, Ohio; Goddard Space Flight Center, Maryland; Johnson Space Center, Texas; Stennis Space Center, Mississippi; Michoud Assembly Facility, Louisiana; and Marshall Space Flight Center, Alabama.
