Alaska LNG developer submits plans for hydrogen hub

Alaska Gasline Development Corporation, the state-owned developer of the Alaska LNG export project, said it had submitted a concept paper for a hydrogen hub to the US DOE.

AGDC said in a statement the project would initially produce more than 600 tons per day, eventually growing to 1,600 tons of hydrogen per day in hub capacity.

The project would utilize natural gas feedstock from its planned Alaska LNG project and sequester the associated carbon.

According to AGDC, the Alaska hydrogen hub would support hydrogen ecosystem growth over time from Alaska’s abundant renewable energy sources, including tidal, wind, hydro, and geothermal energy.

The hub concept anticipates using $850 million in DOE funding along with $3.75 billion in private sector funds, backed by offtake agreements from hydrogen customers in the US and Asia, it said.

AGDC recently joined forces with Japan’s Mitsubishi and Toyo Engineering as well as Hilcorp Alaska to look into producing ammonia in the Cook Inlet region.

The company is developing the $38.7 billion Alaska LNG project. It secured an approval from the US FERC back in May 2020 to contract the project but it has not taken a final investment decision.

If developed, the project would consist of liquefaction facilities designed to produce up to 20 mtpa and pipeline capable of transporting up to 3.9 bcf of gas per day to the plant.
