Four major companies in the oil and gas industry are collaborating on a study to evaluate and advance of the development of hydrogen and ammonia facility on the US Gulf Coast. This includes Air Liquide, a French multinational company gas supplier, Lyondellbasell, a multinational chemical company, Chevron, a multinational energy corporation and Uniper SE, a German based energy company.

The group will be assessing the potential for producing hydrogen using natural gas with carbon capture and storage (CCS) and renewable hydrogen via electrolysis to supply end-use markets, including the ammonia, petrochemicals, power, and mobility markets.

‘Across the value chain, collaborations are critical to developing a hydrogen ecosystem, and this is an example of bringing together leaders in the space to explore lower carbon hydrogen opportunities and to contribute complementary expertise,’ says Austin Knight, vice president of hydrogen, Chevron New Energies.

‘Uniper is very excited to collaborate with this unique group of companies to explore a truly transformative US Gulf Coast hydrogen infrastructure project,’ says Marc Merrill, president and CEO of Uniper in North America. ‘We look forward to bringing the best of our U.S. business and global technical and commercial platforms to support this effort.’

CEO of Air Liquide North America, Adam Peters, adds: ‘The Gulf Coast is the ideal location to model hydrogen and carbon capture technologies as immediate pathways to decarbonizing hard-to-abate sectors.’

‘We look forward to collaborating with the members of this consortium to continue evaluating and advancing clean hydrogen as a potential solution for reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of our US Gulf Coast manufacturing assets,’ says Aaron Ledet, senior vice president, Olefins and Polyolefins Americas of LyondellBasell.
