Woodside expands hydrogen portfolio to the United States
Woodside has announced plans to expand its portfolio of hydrogen production opportunities to the US, securing land in Oklahoma for future development of a modular hydrogen facility and entering a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Hyzon Motors. Woodside has secured a lease and option to purchase 94 acres (38 hectares) of vacant land in Ardmore, Oklahoma, to underpin future development of its proposed H2OK project. The Company is also progressing similar land acquisition opportunities aligned to growth markets in the US.
Subject to approvals and customer demand, the H2OK concept involves construction of an initial 290-megawatt (MW) facility, which will use electrolysis to produce up to 90 tonnes per day (tpd) of liquid hydrogen for the heavy transport sector. The location offers the capacity for expansion up to 550 MW and 180 tpd. Woodside has completed preliminary design of the modular, scalable production facility and is evaluating tenders to enable commencement of front-end engineering design before the end of this year. The project is targeting a final investment decision in the second half of 2022, and first liquid hydrogen production in 2025.
