LUKOIL and Rusatom Overseas agreed to study project of green hydrogen production for PETROTEL-LUKOIL

Green hydrogen production projects have great potential for decarbonizing industrial facilities and make notable contribution to solving the problem of CO2 emissions

LUKOIL and Rusatom Overseas agreed to study project of green hydrogen production for PETROTEL-LUKOIL

Moscow, December 24 - Neftegaz.RU. Rusatom Overseas (part of ROSATOM) and LUKOIL signed a memorandum of intent on the development of cooperation regarding production and supply of green hydrogen for PETROTEL-LUKOIL S.A. refinery located in the city of Ploesti, Romania.

ROSATOM is one of the leaders of hydrogenenergy development in Russia.
In the production area, the state corporation is developing a range of electrolysers, steam-methane reforming installations, and a project of nuclear power and technology plant with a high-temperature gas reactor; the company also offers solutions for energy storage and consumption, such as composite cylinders and polymer fuel cells.

The parties plan to study opportunities for construction of a green hydrogen production unit at the refinery, thus reducing CO2 emissions, as well as to look into the issue of obtaining government support for the project at both national and European levels.

Evgeny Pakermanov, President of Rusatom Overseas, said:
  • ROSATOM acts as investor, developer and technological partner in hydrogen projects in Russia and abroad
  • We are happy to offer our cooperation in supplying turnkey low-carbon hydrogen to LUKOIL
  • We are studying possibilities of manufacturing hydrogen at the Romanian refinery by employing electrolysers with production capacity of 10 000 m3 per hour
Rustem Gimaletdinov, VP for Oil Refining, Petrochemicals and Gas Processing of LUKOIL, noted:
  • Together with our technological partner, ROSATOM, we will evaluate prospects for our plant’s switching to one of the most environmentally-friendly technology of hydrogen production, which enables refineries to greatly reduce their carbon footprint
  • In the future, this will allow us to replace all traditionally produced hydrogen, generated by methane steam reforming, with green hydrogen, generated via electrolysis in symbiosis with renewable energy sources
ROSATOM has a considerable technological and R&D potential to develop low-carbon hydrogen production technologies including electrolysis and steam-methane reforming using the CO2 capture technology.
