Gazprom Neft to cooperate on hydrogen and decarbonisation of industry with Rusatom Overseas

Gazprom Neft is, already, producing more than 100 000 tonnes of hydrogen throughout its technological facilities, with plans to reach 250 000 tonnes by 2024

St.Petersburg, October 14 - Neftegaz.RU. During the 10th Anniversary St Petersburg International Gas Forum, Gazprom Neft and Rusatom Overseas (part of the Rosatom) have signed an agreement on cooperating in hydrogen energy and reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

Vadim Yakovlev, 1st Deputy CEO of Gazprom Neft, said:
  • Our company is part of the global trend in transitioning to low-carbon energy and decarbonising production facilities
  • Oil-industry specialists have considerable experience in capturing and injecting gas into geological formations
  • We are in a position to offer our company’s skills and competencies to companies in related industries - incl. low-carbon hydrogen production on Sakhalin
The 2 companies have agreed to work together on investigating opportunities in transporting and storing carbon dioxide generated during hydrogen production as part of Rosatom’s projects on Sakhalin Island.

Gazprom Neft will work on investigating the technical and commercial aspects of carbon dioxide recycling.
The parties will also look into prospects for collaborating in other areas associated with decarbonising production facilities.

Deploying carbon dioxide recycling technologies is consistent with sustainable development goals, and is gradually becoming standard practice in industry.
Evgeny Pakermanov, President of Rusatom Overseas, noted:
  • The issue of achieving carbon neutrality is becoming ever more urgent for many of Russia’s regions, and demand for cutting-edge technologies in this area can only grow
  • It’s beyond question that our cooperation with Gazprom Neft in organising carbon dioxide handling as part of our hydrogen projects on Sakhalin is going to play a key role in implementing our major programme to develop a carbon-free economy in the region and to deploy the best technological solutions there
Rosatom is implementing a project to build a plant to produce hydrogen from natural gas in the Sakhalin Oblast, expected to produce between 30,000 and 100,000 tonnes per year.

The company is to study Gazprom Neft’s experience in closed-cycle CO2 capture and injection at depths of several km, and to examine the outlook for recycling CO2 emitted during hydrogen production on the Sakhalin project.
Similar solutions have been successfully deployed by Serbia’s NIS (a JV between Gazprom Neft and Serbia) at the Rusanda field.
