Transitus, Proteum to Produce Hydrogen in Europe Using Natural Gas from North Sea

(P&GJ) — Proteum Energy (Proteum) and Transitus Energy (Transitus) have entered into an agreement to explore joint development opportunities in the U.K., Netherlands, Republic of Ireland and Norway to produce low-carbon hydrogen.

The collaboration brings together Transitus’ vision to decarbonize energy production in the North Sea region and Proteum’s proprietary steam non-methane reforming technology (SnMR) coupled with CCS to provide low-cost low-carbon clean hydrogen to the U.K. and European markets.

“Proteum Energy is excited to join with Transitus to accelerate the U.K.’s and Europe’s transition to a clean energy economy by reforming natural gas resources from North Sea production into reliable, economical, clean hydrogen. Both companies share a common vision of decarbonizing energy markets with practical, economic and reliable low carbon intensity hydrogen solutions,” Laurence B. Tree II, president and CEO of Proteum, said.

Proteum has developed and operates proprietary modular technology that reforms non-methane hydrocarbons and oxygenated hydrocarbons into low cost, low carbon intensity hydrogen with CCS. Combining its novel SnMR technology with conventional process modules enables Proteum to scale up hydrogen production from 15 metric tonnes per day to 150 tonnes or more, depending upon site requirements.

Utilizing existing gas reserves and infrastructure, the UK and Europe have every opportunity to build a low-carbon energy supply and be on the forefront of decarbonization.

“Blue hydrogen will accelerate the transition towards decarbonization of the energy sector. It enables utilization of natural gas as a clean fuel. It is a “fast-track” to decarbonizing while ensuring reliable and affordable access to energy during these demanding times,” Bjørn Inge Tønnessen, executive chair of Transitus, said.
