Wintershall to study producing hydrogen from natural gas

German oil and gas firm Wintershall Dea and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have launched a three-year project to study producing hydrogen from natural gas without CO2 emissions.

Methane pyrolysis enables the methane in natural gas to be separated into gaseous hydrogen and solid carbon, which Wintershall said could be a key component in delivering a climate-neutral energy supply in the future.

“Natural gas is already the cleanest conventional source of energy, yet it can become even more climate-friendly moving ahead if we separate off the hydrogen and the carbon contained in it,” Hugo Dijkgraaf, Wintershall’s Chief Technology Officer said.
