Province has announced it is canvassing plans for preliminary studies for a renewable hydrogen project in Western Australia.
Known as the Zero Carbon Renewable Hydrogen Project, the development is currently in its infancy, but Province said it will work towards the “foundation and demonstration of an advanced priority pilot trial of green energy and green ammonia production in the Carnarvon region”.
“The second stage should involve gas blending with a scale up project to feed into the nearby Dampier Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline (DBNGP),” the company said.
“This should assist the WA Government in meeting its objective of up to 10 per cent green hydrogen in the pipeline by 2030.
“The optimum end-game would be full-scale production to supply Asian markets, as well as multiple markets in Australia.”
The company said it expects to commence feasibility studies for both renewable power generation and green hydrogen production within the next 12-18 months.
The DBNGP is owned and operated by Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) and Province said discussions could commence with the pipeline operator soon.
