H2 Let’s Go!
Western Australia has an opportunity to take an early lead in becoming a global hydrogen industry powerhouse, and a newly defined pathway to maximising the benefits from the state’s hydrogen potential will help to guide the way.
That’s the message coming out of a duo of new reports commissioned by the Western Australian Government. Coinciding with the Hydrogen Global Summit, the two reports look into options for the storage and transmission of hydrogen in the state.
One report focuses on blending hydrogen into existing gas pipleline networks, with the other reviewing the hydrogen storage potential of depleted gas and oil fields.
The reports highlight and reinforces the vital role WA’s natural gas infrastructure can play in the nascent but economically attractive hydrogen industry.
The Perth Basin is identified by the report’s authors as a potentially prolific hydrogen storage location, with hydrogen gas blends cited as a crucial development to reduce the carbon footprint of the region and secure WA’s position at the forefront of this burgeoning new economy.
WA Hydrogen Industry Minister Alannah MacTiernan relayed the State Government’s commitment to the hydrogen opportunity in front of them.
“The two reports we have released today identify steps for making sure we have the infrastructure required for the transmission and storage of hydrogen in Western Australia.
“As we start producing more and more hydrogen, we need to know how we are going to safely move and store it around the state.”
