Petrofac Gets Oz Green Hydrogen Feed Work
Petrofac has been awarded a green hydrogen front end engineering design (Feed) contract for the Arrowsmith hydrogen project, which will become Australia’s largest commercial-scale green hydrogen complex, it said on October 5.
“The contract represents a significant strategic step in Petrofac’s continued expansion into new and renewable energy and quickly follows its recently announced award and partnerships to support carbon capture storage and hydrogen projects in the UK and abroad,” the company said. The contract has been awarded by Infinite Blue Energy Group (IBE),
Petrofac’s scope of work includes reviewing the conceptual work carried out on the project to date and the execution of the Feed study. The scope will be undertaken by Petrofac’s teams in Perth, Western Australia and Woking, England.
As part of the main study, Petrofac will build an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) design, cost and schedule estimation to support final investment decision.
Located in Western Australia, the Arrowsmith hydrogen project is expected to start production by the end of 2022 and will generate 25 metric tons/day of green hydrogen from the zero carbon energy sources of water, solar and wind.
