Rusatom Overseas and Air Liquide complete feasibility study for Sakhalin hydrogen project


Rusatom Overseas and Air Liquide complete feasibility study for Sakhalin hydrogen project

Rusatom Overseas and Air Liquide announced the completion of a feasibility study for the construction of a hydrogen production complex on Sakhalin Island. The results were presented at a meeting with the Government of the Sakhalin Region, according to the Rusatom press service.

Based on the positive results of the study, RAOS and Air Liquide are preparing for the next stage of the project - FEED (front end engineering design).

The Government of the Sakhalin Region expressed its support for the project and highlighted its importance for the region’s development. The project is carried out within the framework of a memorandum of understanding signed by the parties in April 2021.

The construction of the hydrogen production complex will become an integral part of a large-scale project for the creation and development of a hydrogen cluster in the Sakhalin Region. The purpose of the project is to lay the foundation for the organisation of an effective hydrogen supply chain on the island for export and supply of local consumers in the energy, transport and industry sectors.

Valery Limarenko, Governor of the Sakhalin Region, stressed the importance of the project for the production of low-carbon hydrogen by steam reforming of methane using environmentally friendly technologies for capturing CO2 emissions.

Together with our partners, we have completed the first fundamental stage of the future complex. This is a very important project for our region, and we look forward to its successful implementation

Valery Limarenko, Governor of the Sakhalin Region

Evgeny Pakermanov, President of Rusatom, noted existing interest from the countries of the Asia-Pacific region in importing low-carbon hydrogen from Russia.

We are already negotiating with potential partners in Japan and the Republic of Korea to launch an international supply chain for low-carbon hydrogen from 2025
