As part of the collaboration, the partners would leverage existing assets, adjacent lands, and strong leadership to support domestic industries in transitioning to low-carbon hydrogen technologies.

The partnership is also hoping to attract further investment in Alberta’s industrial heartland and secure the areas low-carbon future.

An existing pipeline is expected to be leveraged in order to transport hydrogen across the region and complement the growing hydrogen manufacturing and distribution network within the region.

Dean Setoguchi, President and CEO of Keyera, said, “Our strategic collaboration with Shell is founded on a shared vision to advance continued decarbonisation of the energy industry, Alberta’s economic resiliency, and Canada’s objective to achieve a net zero future.

“This opportunity supports the collective decarbonisation ambitions of Keyera and our many industrial neighbours. We believe that together, Keyera and Shell can successfully build on our respective expertise and existing assets in the Heartland to enable the development of a low-carbon project in Alberta.”

Susannah Pierce, President and Country Chair at Shell Canada, said, “As Canada’s energy system continues to evolve and change companies both big and small will need to find ways to reduce emissions.

“The agreement with Keyera will drive increased collaboration to develop low-carbon energy projects and technologies that are needed by society in our journey to net zero.”

Mark Plamondon, Executive Director of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association, said, “Keyera, in partnership with Shell, is building on the tremendous value proposition in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland by developing regional infrastructure that supports industrial decarbonisation in Alberta and Canada.

“This collaborative approach leverages synergies across our region to advance industrial growth, inclusivity, and energy diversification while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, highlighting the region’s position as a leader in Canada’s low-carbon future.”

North American Hydrogen Summit

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
