Woodside pens hydrogen deal with Keppel Data Centres

Australian LNG player Woodside and Keppel Data Centres, a unit of Keppel, have signed a non-binding heads of agreement to evaluate the potential supply of liquefied hydrogen to Singapore.

Woodside said in a joint statement on Wednesday the supplies would come from its portfolio of planned production facilities, including its proposed H2Perth facility in Perth, Western Australia.

This agreement follows the conclusion of feasibility studies Woodside announced in December 2021.

The HOA provides a pathway for the parties to jointly develop further commercial principles for key hydrogen supply chain agreements, according to the statement.

Also, the deal references the potential purchase of about 1000 tonnes per day of liquefied hydrogen by Keppel Data Centres as early as 2030, when the parties anticipate the associated production technologies and shipping systems will reach maturity, it said.

The partners said that a hydrogen supply chain will benefit Keppel Data Centres’ facilities, including its planned Datapark+.

Using hydrogen instead of more carbon-intensive energy sources has the potential to reduce emissions generated by data centres, the statement said.

Long-term domestic gas deal

Besides this hydrogen deal, Woodside announced in a separate statement on Wednesday that all conditions relating to its long-term gas sale and purchase agreement with Perdaman Chemicals and Fertilisers have now been satisfied.

This follows a positive final investment decision by Perdaman on its 2.3 million tonne per annum urea plant near Karratha in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, it said.

Pipeline gas sold under the GSPA is for use at the plant, which will produce an important fertilizer feedstock in support of both domestic and international agricultural users, according to Woodside.

Supply under the GSPA is for about 130 Terajoules per day (TJ/day) of gas over a term of 20 years, commencing upon commissioning of the plant expected in either 2026 or 2027.

Woodside will supply the gas supplies primarily from the Scarborough project, which is currently under development.

Scarborough will add up to 225 TJ/day of new domestic gas supply into Western Australia from 2026.
