Sky Blue Hydrogen explores producing clean hydrogen at natural gas sites

The concept of Sky Blue Hydrogen – exploring the production of clean hydrogen on site at natural gas fields – was discussed at COP27 today.

Belinda Perriman, a carbon emission reduction consultant within industrial and transport sectors, said the name is designed to combine hydrogen production “with some blue sky thinking”. The vast majority of hydrogen production (96%) is currently through natural gas, resulting in significant amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

In her presentation at COP27, she outlined how the process can be better integrated, stored and be more energy efficient, drawing on proven technologies.

“What if we could shrink down that circle dramatically – and instead of those emissions are created, you pipe them away, and permanently store them miles away from where they are produced? What if, right at the gas processing site, we put hydrogen production there too?
