Beyond fossil gas – the transition to hydrogen
Ultimately the LNG industry will have to transition to the production of gas that does not cause carbon pollution and climate change, and green hydrogen provides a transition pathway for this industry. LNG companies have developed advanced technology for gas production, handling, storage and shipping and this knowledge and technology can provide a strategic advantage in establishing a renewable energy derived hydrogen industry in WA.
The WA Renewable Hydrogen Strategy recognises the potential for a new hydrogen industry for WA. In this strategy, the WA government has set a goal that by 2040 Western Australia’s market share in global hydrogen exports is similar to its share in LNG today.
