Oil and gas giant signs up several more potential customers for hydrogen produced at its Teesside fossil fuel and CCS facility. A raft of companies have their signalled their interest in purchasing ‘blue’ hydrogen produced at BP’s proposed production facility on Teesside, with the oil and gas giant today announcing several prospective offtake agreements. BP today said it had signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) with CF Fertilisers, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Sembcorp Energy UK, and sustainable aviation fuel developer Alfanar that see them become potential purchasers of hydrogen produced at the H2Teesside project, the plans for which were first unveiled in March. The facility, which would use a process known as Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) alongside carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology to produce low carbon hydrogen from fossil fuel gas, aims to ramp up capacity to 1GW of the versatile fuel by the end of the decade. BP envisages roughly two million tonnes of carbon dioxide emitted during the production process being captured and sent for storage from the project annually by 2030.
