Woodside taps Air Liquide for US hydrogen project

Australian LNG firm Woodside said it had awarded a major contract to Air Liquide Engineering and Construction for the liquefaction equipment at its proposed H2OK hydrogen project in Ardmore, Oklahoma.

Under the contract, Air Liquide would provide the engineering and fabrication of two 30 tonne per day liquefaction units which would liquefy hydrogen produced through electrolysis in preparation for storage, loading and transportation to customers, Woodside said in a statement.

Woodside did not provide the price tag of the contract.

The awarding of the liquefaction equipment contract follows Woodside’s selection of Nel Hydrogen Electrolyser, a subsidiary of Nel, to design and develop alkaline electrolyzer equipment for H2OK.

Woodside said it is still targeting a final investment decision for H2OK in 2023, subject to all necessary approvals and finalizing commercial deals.

In addition to H2OK, Woodside is working on proposed hydrogen projects in Australia, H2Perth and H2TAS.

The firm recently joined the proposed Southern Green Hydrogen project in New Zealand as well.

Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill said in the statement that the contract award was a “significant milestone” for H2OK, for which frontend engineering design activities are targeted to be completed this year.

“We are aiming to develop our New Energy business in the United States. The signing of the contract for liquefaction equipment is another important step forward in advancing H2OK, which would be our first producing hydrogen facility globally,” O’Neill said.
