Leading Australian energy infrastructure business APA Group will investigate opportunities in Western Australia to commercialise and deliver low cost hydrogen as part of a newly established consortium with Pilot Energy and Warrego Energy Limited.

The consortium’s Mid West Blue Hydrogen and carbon capture and storage (CCS) feasibility study will look at blue hydrogen technology, locations for production, and opportunities to commercialise and distribute low-cost blue hydrogen, while assessing the potential use of the Cliff Head oil project and other reservoirs across the broader Perth Basin to store the carbon dioxide.

APA Group Executive Infrastructure Development Kevin Lester said the feasibility study would focus on technology, regional carbon capture and storage potential and explore customer requirements to deliver low cost hydrogen.
