Warrego Energy has announced the completion of a detailed Feasibility Study into the potential for a Blue Hydrogen and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project in Mid-West Australia. Hydrogen Industry Leaders looks at how the study’s findings will support Australia’s route to net zero by 2050.
Completed by a consortium consisting of Warrego, Pilot Energy, and leading gas infrastructure company the APA Group, through its subsidiary APT Management Services, the Feasibility Study has confirmed the Mid-West region is suitable for blue hydrogen production and CCS.
The study focused on blue hydrogen technology, regional carbon capture and storage potential, hydrogen markets and project infrastructure and commercialisation.
Warrego Energy’s Group CEO Dennis Donald said: “We welcome the news that the Feasibility Study has confirmed the Mid-West region is suitable for blue hydrogen production and CCS, developing new CCS projects has become a major focus for Australian and global governments.”
Following this, the consortium has extended existing arrangements to further evaluate the findings of the study and will also consider the range of potential commercial arrangements, including future participation and timing before any decision is taken to proceed with the next stage of implementing and developing a project in the Mid-West region.
