Woodside looking to export liquid hydrogen to Singapore

Australian LNG giant Woodside is looking to export liquid hydrogen (LH2) from Western Australia to Singapore and potentially Japan.

The firm said in a statement on Wednesday it has entered into a memorandum of understanding with several firms to study such exports.

Woodside said the study partners include Keppel Data Centres, City Energy, Osaka Gas Singapore, and City-OG Gas Energy Services.

This new agreement follows the announcement of the proposed H2Perth hydrogen facility in Kwinana where Woodside would seek to establish a large-scale LH2 and ammonia export hub, it said.

According to Woodside, the study for the feasibility of a long-term, stable supply chain of sustainable LH2 from WA to Singapore and potentially Japan would continue until mid-2022, at which juncture the parties would decide on the next phase of their collaboration.

This development supports the Singapore Green Plan, which charts ambitious targets over the next 10 years and positions Singapore to achieve its long-term net zero emissions aspirations as soon as viable, it said.

Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill said the memorandum complements Woodside’s strategy to develop a “diversified and scalable portfolio of new energy products to help reduce customers’ emissions.”

“It is important for us to work collaboratively with potential customers and end users such as Keppel Data Centres, Osaka Gas Singapore, City Energy and City-OG Gas Energy Services to collaboratively build out a sustainable hydrogen supply chain from our proposed H2Perth project,” she said.
