Gazprom, the Sakhalin Region, and State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom signed a Cooperation Agreement in the field of hydrogen energy.
The document outlines the main areas of cooperation between the parties in the implementation of the construction project for a plant based in the Sakhalin Region to produce hydrogen from natural gas via steam methane reforming with capture of carbon dioxide.
In line with the Agreement, Rosatom will look into the possibilities of creating the plant and the logistics infrastructure for supplying hydrogen to consumers. The regional government is ready to facilitate a favorable investment climate, as well as to consider the possibility of taking part in the creation of the requisite infrastructure. In its turn, Gazprom will explore the possibility of supplying gas as feedstock for the aforementioned plant.
A joint coordinating committee will be set up to establish interaction between the parties under the newly signed agreement.
