One of the objective of the Mid-West blue hydrogen and CCS study was to assess the CCS and use potential of the Cliff Head oil project and additional reservoirs across the broader Perth basin.

Warrego Energy on September 19 announced the completion of a detailed feasibility study into the potential for a blue hydrogen and carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in the Mid-West region of Western Australia.

The feasibility study - completed by a consortium consisting of Warrego, Pilot Energy and gas infrastructure company the APA - has confirmed the Mid-West region is suitable for blue hydrogen production and CCS.

The consortium has now extended its existing arrangements to further evaluate the findings of the feasibility study, Warrego said. It will also consider a range of potential commercial arrangements.

The objective of the Mid-West blue hydrogen and CCS study was to assess the carbon capture, storage and use potential of the Cliff Head oil project and additional reservoirs across the broader Perth basin, the production of blue hydrogen and commercialisation via the provision of CO2 management services and sale of hydrogen.
