Equinor will secure access to carbon transport and storage capacity and offer low carbon hydrogen to the market. Linde will build, co-own and operate the hydrogen production and carbon capture and transfer facility.

The aim is to build a facility in the Eemshaven industrial area to reform natural gas from the Norwegian continental shelf to low-carbon hydrogen with CO2 capture and storage (CCS). More than 95 percent of the CO2 will be captured and stored safely and permanently under the seabed offshore Norway. The aim is to start production in late 2028 and the hydrogen plant will be connected to onshore hydrogen pipelines planned in both the Netherlands and Germany.

The H2M Eemshaven project is part of our strategy to develop hydrogen production in three to five major industrial clusters in Europe by 2035. Linde’s experience with the safe development, execution and operation of hydrogen and carbon capture plants complements Equinor’s experience and competence within energy marketing and CCS. Together we can produce low carbon hydrogen to ensure reliable and clean energy to Europe. We look forward to developing this important project together with Linde.

Grete Tveit, senior vice president for low carbon solutions in Equinor

The transition to a low-carbon economy is steadily gaining momentum. We look forward to working with Equinor and contributing Linde’s technology and expertise to develop this flagship project.

Stefano Innocenzi, President Region Europe West, Linde
