By 2024, Gazprom Neft intends to create 250,000 tonnes of hydrogen.
Gazprom Neft has joined a new hydrogen consortium to promote initiatives developing novel technologies for the production, transportation, storage, and use of hydrogen as part of this push.
With over 100,000 tonnes of hydrogen produced at its technological facilities, the gas business will contribute its experience to advancing hydrogen adoption.
Gazprom will now serve on the Council of Industrial Partners of the Technological Hydrogen Valley consortium, which is supporting hydrogen projects in Russia’s Tomsk, Sakhalin, and Samara areas, as well as the city of Chernogolovka in the Moscow region.
Gazprom has identified hydrogen as a technological tool for oil refining, rather than an end product.
This has resulted in the organization utilizing the clean gas in carbon dioxide capture projects by injecting it into oil reservoirs in order to maintain reservoir pressure and maximize oil recovery.
NIS in Serbia, a joint company between Gazprom and the Serbian government, has successfully deployed these technology to the Rusanda field.
