Hydrogen will be produced using electrolysis technologies and natural gas reforming with carbon emissions abated or offset.
“We will continue supporting Woodside’s energy transition opportunities and are mutually aligned on the importance of driving lower-carbon energy to advance Australia’s vision as a global leader in clean, innovative, safe and competitive hydrogen production,” said Tareq Kawash, Senior Vice President, Onshore of McDermott.
McDermott’s office in Perth, Australia, and its engineering centre of excellence in The Hague, the Netherlands, will execute the project.
