Plans low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia production and export facility have been unveiled for the Enbridge Ingleside Energy Centre, near Corpus Christi, Texas, to meet growing demands in the clean energies market.

Enbridge and Humble Midstream, an EnCap Flatrock Midream portfolio company, on Friday (6th May) unveiled a new collaboration for the effort that will also feature carbon capture infrastructure.

With the supporting infrastructure, it is hoped up to 95% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) generated in the production process will be sequestered. Enbridge’s affiliate, Texas Easter Transmission Pipeline, will provide the transportation service for the feed gas.

Colin Gruending, Executive Vice-President and President of Liquids Pipelines at Enbridge, said, “This is a good example of how Enbridge is leveraging existing conventional energy assets and capabilities to extend growth and capitalise on low-carbon opportunities in the energy transition.”

“The EIEC is already the premier export facility on the US Gulf Coast and will play an even greater role in the global energy security and sustainability. We’re excited to work with Humble to further develop this opportunity.”

Already, Enbridge and Humble intend to jointly market the capacity of the facility and are in discussions with several potential offtake customers.

Steven Huckaby, CEO of Humble Midstream, said, “Humble is pleased to be joining Enbridge in this first-mover effort to develop clean energy alternatives on a world-class scale.”

“We believe the midstream expertise of both companies positions us well to provide affordable hydrogen and ammonia to a marketplace seeking low carbon alternative fuels. Our team is glad to be partnered with EnCap Flatrock Midstream to pursue this opportunity, a natural extension of their longstanding midstream strategy.”
