Shell selecs Worley for green hydrogen project in Netherlands

June 04/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Shell has picked Australian energy services firm Worley to support the development of a new 200MW electrolysis-based hydrogen plant in the Netherlands, as per Worley's press release.

The new plant in Rotterdam will be powered by renewable energy from an offshore windfarm that is currently in development.

Once complete, the green hydrogen plant will be one of the largest commercial green hydrogen production facilities in the world. Operations are scheduled to start by 2023 and are estimated to produce 50,000-60,000 kilograms of green hydrogen per day.

The green hydrogen produced will initially be used to decarbonise Shells nearby refinery in Pernis and support the industrial use of hydrogen in the heavy transportation industry.

Worley will provide early engineering services for the green hydrogen plant including integration with other assets such as offshore wind, pipelines, electrical grids and Shells Pernis refinery.

As MRC reported earlier, last week, a court in the Netherlands ordered Shell to cut its emissions by 45% by 2030, putting pressure on the company to move faster than it had otherwise planned.

Ethylene and propylene are the main feedstocks for the production of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), respectively.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 576,270 tonnes in the first three month of 2021, up by 4% year on year. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market totalled 410,890 tonnes in January-March 2021, up by 56% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.

Royal Dutch Shell plc is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands and with its registered office in London, United Kingdom. It is the biggest company in the world in terms of revenue and one of the six oil and gas "supermajors". Shell is vertically integrated and is active in every area of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production, refining, distribution and marketing, petrochemicals, power generation and trading.
