Air Liquide to build a hydrogen plant in Sakhalin

By the end of this year, Air Liquide will develop a feasibility study of a plant for the production of hydrogen from natural gas and CO2 capture solution on Sakhalin. According to the information on the public procurement website, the work will be carried out by order of Rusatom Overseas - Gas and Money

The production capacity of the plant amount to 100 tons of hydrogen per day, however, there is a clause in the agreement, according to which Air Liquide has the right to offer a different capacity with a justification. The company will analyse the low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia market in Japan and South Korea and provide opinions and recommendations on export sales of hydrogen to these countries.

In April, Rusatom Overseas, Air Liquide and the Sakhalin region’s government signed a memorandum of understanding. The document provides for cooperation in the study of the possibility of creating a production of low-carbon hydrogen in the Sakhalin region. In September, RAOS, Kamaz, the Corporation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic and the Corporation for the Development of the Sakhalin Region signed a memorandum on the development of hydrogen technologies in the transport sector in Sakhalin.

Air Liquide is a global leader in gas production, technology development and services for various industries including medical, chemical and electronic manufacturers. In Russia, the company operates 18 production sites in key regions. More than 600 employees are responsible for supplying products and services to over 1,700 consumers.
