Texas, US, continues to ramp up its hydrogen capabilities with Enbridge and Humble Midstream revealing plans to develop low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia facilities.
The new facilities will integrate both production and export of hydrogen ammonia which both could have a massively influential role in decarbonising various segments of society – especially industry.
Texas already is home to many well established, large-scale industrial players and thus creating supply for hydrogen could increase demand and reduce the carbon footprint of some of these companies.
H2 View understands that the designated area for these innovative facilities will be at the Enbridge Ingleside Energy Center (EIEC) near Corpus Christi.
Although not entirely green, the new facility is expected to incorporate carbon capture infrastructure to ensure around 95% of the carbon emissions are taken and repurposed.
Colin Gruending, Executive Vice-President and President of Liquids Pipelines at Enbridge, said, “This is a good example of how Enbridge is leveraging existing conventional energy assets and capabilities to extend growth and capitalise on low carbon opportunities in the energy transition.
“The EIEC is already the premier export facility on the US Gulf Coast and will play an even greater role in global energy security and sustainability. We’re excited to work with Humble to further develop this opportunity.”
Steven Huckaby, CEO of Humble Midstream, said, “Humble is pleased to be joining Enbridge in this first-mover effort to develop clean energy alternatives on a world-class scale.
“We believe the midstream expertise of both companies positions us well to provide affordable hydrogen and ammonia to a marketplace seeking low carbon alternative fuels.
“Our team is glad to be partnered with EnCap Flatrock Midstream to pursue this opportunity, a natural extension of their longstanding midstream strategy.”
