Centrica and Equinor sign agreement for hydrogen hub
Centrica and Equinor have signed a cooperation agreement to explore the potential for developing a low-carbon hydrogen production hub at Easington in East Yorkshire, UK. The development further strengthens the region’s growing status as the UK’s foremost hydrogen hub.
The project could see the transition to a low-carbon hydrogen hub over the next decade. The development would support the region’s decarbonisation ambitions and aid the UK to meet its net zero goals and hydrogen production targets.
The transition would also safeguard many of the existing jobs within the gas terminal, whilst also creating additional jobs in the future.
The area is also due to be the landing point for the East Coast Cluster’s (one of the UK’s first carbon capture, usage and storage clusters) carbon capture pipeline, which would transport carbon for safe storage deep under the seabed.
