Consulting and engineering company, Wood is working with gas storage, Centrica Storage to evaluate the feasibility of transforming its Easington gas processing terminal to a low-carbon production hub.

Centrica Storage has partnered with Equinor on this project to deliver hydrogen to the Humber region.

Based in East Yorkshire, the hub will be integrated with Centrica’s Rough field redevelopment, as well as the Easington Terminal’s hydrogen fuel switching project.

Wood will leverage its extensive experience in the hydrogen sector to evaluate development scenarios including both green and blue hydrogen production facilities and their associated offsites and utilities.

Dan Carter, president of decarbonisation at Wood, says: ‘This study is closely aligned with Wood’s strategy to focus on enabling our clients to decarbonise their operations and reach net zero through sustainable design. The creation of the Easington hub would provide secure low-carbon energy to the region, supporting the UK’s energy transition.’

‘We are excited to continue our collaboration with Wood as we explore opportunities to fulfil our pledge of facilitating the UK’s transition to net zero, with our goal to establish 1GW+ of green and blue low carbon hydrogen at Easington in East Yorkshire,’ adds Martin Scargill, Centrica Storage MD.
