Moscow, Febuary 9 - Neftegaz.RU. With plans in place to initially target a 100MW scale, the plant is said to be the 1st of its kind for the island.
Looking beyond this, Petrofac is already looking at the potential for scaling up to 3GW.
The finished facility will target production of 17,000 tonnes of hydrogen per year.

H4 Energy, under the management of H2Transition Capital (H2TC), awarded the design services agreement.
It includes an initial screening study that started in January.

During the study, Petrofac will explore options for using wind energy to produce green hydrogen.
This will specifically take place at the site on the southwestern tip of Sakhalin Island.

Jonathan Carpenter, Vice President of Petrofac’s New Energy Services, said:
  • We’re pleased to start study work for this project, the 1st green hydrogen development on Sakhalin and the 1st new energy project for Petrofac in Russia
  • The island offers excellent land availability, coastal proximity, and location adjacent to the Eastern Asian Market (only 40 km sea crossing to Japan) and we look forward to working with H2TC to deliver its 3GW target
Artem Matyushok, founding partner of H2TC, commented:
  • H2TC is excited to work with Petrofac and build on their track record of developing projects supporting the transition to a Hydrogen economy
  • This project is the 1st of many in our plans to address the tremendous demand for hydrogen that exists now and will continue to grow
Petrofac said work would be undertaken from its offices in UK, with support from its team in Sakhalin.
The services company has been present in Sakhalin since 2006.
It expanded its presence in 2017 through a contract with Sakhalin Energy to deliver the engineering, procurement and construction for an onshore processing facility.
