The Blue H2 by T.ENTM hydrogen plant will capture a significant amount of carbon dioxide (CO2), and reduce carbon emissions from the petrochemical complex. LG Chem intends to utilise the captured CO2.

The 56,000 Nm3/h capacity hydrogen plant will use Technip Energies’ proprietary steam reforming technology to convert methane-rich off gas from the naphtha cracking process into hydrogen. The hydrogen plant will include a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) unit for control of NOX emissions.

The new hydrogen unit will be integrated with LG Chem’s naphtha cracking complex (NCC) to allow LG Chem to convert the petrochemical pyrolysis complex to a more sustainable low-carbon process.

Loic Chapuis, SVP Gas & Low Carbon Energies of Technip Energies, was pleased to work with LG Chem to decarbonise its petrochemical complex by incorporating the BlueH2 solution. He said, “Our technology has been proven to reduce carbon emissions by up to 99 percent and has the flexibility to be tailored for various applications in industry.”

Together in a consortium with Clough, it was recently selected to perform the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for TotalEnergies’ Papua LNG project’s upstream production facilities in Papua New Guinea.

The upstream production facilities cover the development of the Elk and Antelope onshore gas fields including the well pads and the central processing facility.

It also incorporates a carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) scheme to remove the fields’ native CO2 and reinject it into the reservoirs.

In consortium with Subsea 7 and Samkang M&T, it has also been selected by Corio Generation and TotalEnergies to perform a FEED for their Ulsan Gray Whale 3 Offshore Windfarm project, located offshore the East Coast of South Korea.

The FEED contract covers engineering for floater, mooring, and inter-array cable (IAC) in collaboration with a wind turbine supplier.

Technip Energies, operating in 34 countries, is active in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), hydrogen and ethylene sectors as well as blue and green hydrogen, sustainable chemistry and CO2 management.
