Hydrogen has surged up the priority list of many oil and gas organizations, taking a primary position in the sector’s decarbonization efforts, new research by DNV GL reveals.
Eoly (part of Colruyt Group), Parkwind and Fluxys revealed plans to build an installation in Zeebrugge, Belgium, to convert renewable electricity into green hydrogen on an industrial scale. The feasibility study for the project turned out positive.
A Dutch consortium comprising Gasunie, Groningen Seaports and Shell The Netherlands, revealed plans to launch the NortH2 project, foreseeing the production of green hydrogen using renewable electricity generated by a mega offshore wind farm, in line with the objectives of the Dutch Climate Accord.
Port of Oostende came in an agreement with DEME Concessions and PMV to construct an offshore wind-powered hydrogen plant until 2025. Through their operational plant, collaborators goal to produce green hydrogen as an energy source for electricity, transport, heat and fuel purposes and as a raw material for industrial purposes.
Ørsted along with six industrial partners have been awarded funding for a demonstration project, called H2RES project, in Denmark using offshore wind power to produce renewable hydrogen for road transport.
The “UKCS Energy Integration: Interim Findings” as issued by The Oil and Gas Authority, which was published on Tuesday 17 December 2019, discusses the first phase of the UKCS Energy Integration Project, led by the OGA; BEIS; The Crown Estate as well as Ofgem, considering options to help feed into a new strategic vision of the UKCS as an integrated energy basin.
The first offshore green hydrogen plant created by the Neptune Energy , located in the Dutch field of the North Sea, includes three energy systems in one platform; offshore wind, offshore gas, and hydrogen. The following video explains how the project will be progressed, keeping in mind that it is the first project of its kind in the sector.
A consortium of Dutch companies, universities and knowledge institutions have teamed up on the ‘Gigawatt Electrolysis Factory’ project, recently kicked-off at the Institute for Sustainable Process Technology, aiming to investigate what it takes to build a gigawatt-sized electrolysis plant in the Netherlands around 2025-2030.
A new research by DNV GL, showed that companies’ resilience to volatile market conditions will be put to the test in 2019. This will happen because business leaders expect the industry to commit to greater investment to meet hydrocarbon demand. 67% of senior oil and gas professionals believe that larger, capital-intensive oil and gas projects will be approved.
