bp has announced that it is developing plans for the UK’s largest blue hydrogen production facility - targeting 1GW of gas production by 2030.
The project would capture and send for storage up to two million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO₂) per year, equivalent to capturing the emissions from the heating of one million UK households.
With close proximity to North Sea storage sites, pipe corridors and existing operational hydrogen storage and distribution capabilities, the area is uniquely placed for H2Teesside to help lead a low carbon transformation.
This will also support jobs, regeneration and the revitalisation of the surrounding area.
H2Teesside, would be a significant step in developing bp’s hydrogen business and make a major contribution to the UK Government’s target of developing 5GW of hydrogen production by 2030.
Industries in Teesside account for over 5% of the UK’s industrial emissions and the region is home to five of the country’s top 25 emitters.
bp has also signed agreements to work with Venator, Northern Gas Networks and Tees Valley Combined Authority on the project.
