Pilot undertook the following feasibility studies through 2021/2022 to define the potential project scale and opportunity to develop clean energy projects across the WA Mid West and South West leveraging Pilots existing assets and operating experience The results of the feasibility studies identified the Mid West Clean Energy project and the material CO2 aggregation opportunity in the South West and Mid West regions. The feasibility study results are summarized in the following:
Genesis and Technip Energies, and CO2Tech were engaged to assess the feasibility of developing and commercialising the Mid West Blue Hydrogen and CCS projectwhich includes a carbon management service and the associated production and sale of blue hydrogen.
8 Rivers undertook a detailed assessment of deploying the clean power generation (NET Power) and 8 Rivers 8RH2 technology for clean hydrogen production. The study investigated the integration of these technologies across renewable hydrogen and blue hydrogen and CCS projects.
The objective of the South West Carbon Management and Blue Hydrogen Project Feasibility Study was to define the regions flue gas and CO2 emission opportunity set, assess the CCS potential of the South West Hub Project and commercialisation via the provision of carbon management services and sale of hydrogen. The Study will incorporate the blue hydrogen assessments from the Mid West feasibility study and the 8 Rivers Capital blue hydrogen technology study (announced 12 August 2021).
Genesis and Technip Energies, Lautec and Green Fuel Development were engaged to assess the feasibility of developing and commercialising the Mid West region’s world class renewable energy resources and the associated production and sale of green hydrogen.
