Recent reports help power Western Australia’s hydrogen future
New reports reveal steps WA must take to become a global hydrogen powerhouse.
A renewable hydrogen strategy has been developed by the Western Australian Government, aiming to make the state a significant producer, exporter, and user of renewable hydrogen.
Prepared by DBNGP (WA) Nominees Pty Ltd, the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline Hydrogen Feasibility Study outlines a pathway for declaring sections of the pipeline suitable for up to 9 per cent hydrogen/natural gas blends.
The McGowan Government has also released the Stage 1 report of its study into the hydrogen storage potential of depleted oil and gas fields in WA.
Commissioned by the Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA), and prepared by RISC Advisory, the Stage 1 report identifies seven onshore fields as good candidates for hydrogen storage projects.
