BP reviews hydrogen potential in Australia

The company will study turning a refinery in Western Australia into a hydrogen hub

BP reviews hydrogen potential in Australia

Sydney, September 8 - Neftegaz.RU. The Australian division of BP said September 7 it was drawing on state support to conduct a green hydrogen production study at a refinery in Western Australia.

BP said it would work through a partnership with Australian lender Macquarie Group on a feasibility study meant to assess transitioning the UK company’s refinery at Kwinana in Western Australia into a green hydrogen hub.

The company said:
  • The project marks a significant step in BP’s broader plans to repurpose its Kwinana site as an integrated energy hub that produces and distributes fuel for the future
  • BP is already underway with plans to develop a renewable fuels plant at the site, producing sustainable aviation fuel and renewable diesel
Green hydrogen uses renewable energy to power an electrolyser that can split water into oxygen and hydrogen, with little to no net carbon emissions.

BP Australia will receive A$300 000 to redevelop the Kwinana facility.
The government of Western Australia has already committed almost A$30 million towards developing a job-creating renewable hydrogen industry.

BP Australia president Frederic Baudry said:
  • We are excited by the role bp’s Kwinana energy hub will play in close collaboration with our partners
  • BP has a strong track record as an energy provider to the industrial area and has readily accessible land, existing infrastructure including storage and distribution facilities, and a team with extensive operational capabilities and experience
