SPE Live: Hydrogen as Part of the Energy Mix – Commercial and Technical Perspectives

A hydrogen economy envisions using hydrogen as a clean, low-carbon, and versatile energy carrier and fuel. It offers benefits in terms of energy security, public health, and economic development. Initially, Blue Hydrogen manufactured from natural gas in combination with CCS could help diversify our market options, while helping to reduce greenhouse emissions. It has the potential to generate new job opportunities for many of us in the O&G Industry.

The global market for hydrogen and fuel cells is expected to grow from $5.5 billion in 2018 to $42.5 billion by 2026. However, Hydrogen is certainly not a silver bullet. A rapid expansion in hydrogen usage also requires that we collectively address several challenges and barriers especially in the areas of storage and transportation. Hydrogen and Ammonia should be seen as complementary energy delivery options that will rapidly expand alongside LNG, renewable, modular nuclear reactors, geothermal and small-scale hydro-projects.

This SPE live will introduce the SPE Hydrogen Technical Section and discuss the H2 as a part of the energy mix, addressing the investment landscape, as well as technical challenges and opportunities.

Moderated by Zachary Evans, Sales Director Underground Storage, DarkVision.
