Global screening project to identify natural hydrogen hotspots


Technology and Earth science speciality CGG has launched a worldwide natural hydrogen screening project that aims to identify and ‘high-grade’ areas for natural hydrogen exploration.

The company will harness its extensive library of subsurface data and latest technological advances for the project, which aims to help develop new solutions to address complex challenges presented by the energy transition.

“This natural hydrogen screening project builds on our successful track record of developing valuable Global Resource Screening Studies for geothermal energy, critical mineral exploration and carbon and energy storage, that combine our geoscience, data science and technology expertise,” said Chris Page, VP, Geoscience at CGG.

Natural hydrogen – also called white hydrogen – could play a key role in the energy transition. Currently, only 0.1% of hydrogen comes from green sources, with the majority originating from carbon-intensive ‘grey’ sources such as steam methane reforming.
