Golar LNG and Black & Veatch are collaborating on ammonia production, carbon capture, green LNG and hydrogen as part of a new agreement.

The two companies yesterday (19th Nov) said they hope to jointly publish a thought leadership paper in its first area of interest, floating ammonia production with carbon capture and storage.

During later months, the partnership will continue to jointly publish our thoughts as we focus in on the technical and commercial viability of the most prospective floating applications of the green and blue technologies and other areas of interest.

“Replacement of coal, fuel oil and diesel with cleaner burning LNG represents one of the easiest and most cost-effective near-term steps to decarbonise the worlds energy mix,” said Iain Ross, Golar CEO.

“Golar and Hygo Energy Transition are extremely well positioned to drive this with their low-cost quick delivery infrastructure solutions and emerging use of BIO LNG. The next step is to plan for a net zero carbon energy mix.”

“As a company with an established history of championing and delivering disruptive solutions to problems in its industry, and a serious and continuous commitment to its ESG agenda, Golar looks forward to working with a likeminded and equally capable partner, in the field of floating ammonia and hydrogen production, carbon capture, and other decarbonisation initiatives.”

Hoe Wai Cheong President of Black & Veatch’s Oil and Gas Business, added, “This collaboration builds on years of delivering commercial and technology innovation with Golar, a visionary in monetizing natural gas reserves.”

“Given hydrogen and ammonia’s use in many energy-intensive industries we can make meaningful progress in lowering the carbon footprint and help these industries meet new sustainability commitments.”
