Houston, May 18 - Neftegaz.RU. UK-based BP and and German chemicals giant Linde have announced plans to create a major carbon capture and storage (CCS) project near in Texas, which would allow low-carbon hydrogen production at Linde’s existing facilities.

The development will also support the storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) captured from other industrial facilities – paving the way for large-scale decarbonization of the Texas Gulf Coast industrial corridor.

Dave Lawler, President of bp America, said:
  • The energy expertise in Texas and strong supply chains have been generations in the making
  • This new low carbon energy project will help us leverage those strengths for the next chapter of the energy transition
  • In particular, it can help decarbonize hard-to-abate industries for the greatest potential impact on emissions while protecting jobs
Using Linde’s hydrogen pipeline network, the low-carbon hydrogen will be sold to customers under long-term contracts.
As part of the project, bp will develop and permit the geological storage sites for permanent sequestration of the CO2.

Dan Yankowski, President of Linde Gases North America, said:
  • Linde is committed to lowering absolute carbon emissions 35% by 2035 and reaching climate neutrality by 2050
  • Capturing the CO2 from our hydrogen production plants in the Houston area will be a significant step towards achieving these goals
The overall development, expected to be operational as early as 2026, will also enable capture and storage of CO2 from other large industrial facilities in the region and could ultimately store up to 15 million metric tons per year across multiple onshore geologic storage sites – the equivalent of taking approximately 3 million cars off the road each year.
