It is also exploring development of blue hydrogen in Southern Alberta

SpectrumH2, which provides hydrogen and carbon storage solutions, said November 30 it had signed a letter of intent with a local engineering firm to assess the feasibility of a large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Alberta.

The “comprehensive” project, it said, would include the capture of CO2 at a large-scale industrial site and the transportation and sequestration of the CO2 in a “suitable geologic formation.” Neither the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm nor the industrial emitter were identified.

SpectrumH2 has submitted an expression of interest under the government of Alberta’s request for carbon sequestration hub proposals and intends to submit a full project proposal when Alberta opens that part of the programme, expected in early December.

In addition to the CCS project, SpectrumH2 said it had executed a memorandum of understanding with an “intermediate natural gas producer” to collaborate on the development of a blue hydrogen production facility in southern Alberta. It did not name the producer.
