BP, Linde plan CCS project for decarbonization across Texas Gulf Coast

BP and Linde, a multinational chemical company, have announced plans to advance a major carbon capture and storage project in Texas that will enable low-carbon hydrogen production at Linde’s existing facilities. The development will also support the storage of carbon dioxide captured from other industrial facilities – paving the way for large-scale decarbonization of the Texas Gulf Coast industrial corridor.

Upon completion, the project will capture and store CO2 from Linde’s hydrogen production facilities in the greater Houston area – and potentially from its other Texas facilities – to produce low carbon hydrogen for the region, the company says. The low carbon hydrogen will be sold to customers along with Linde’s hydrogen pipeline network under long-term contracts to enable the production of low carbon chemicals and fuels.

As part of the project, BP will appraise, develop and permit the geological storage sites for permanent sequestration of the CO2. BP says its trading & shipping business aims to bring custom low carbon solutions to the project, including renewable power and certified natural gas, along with commodity trading and price risk management expertise.

Linde will use its proprietary technology and operational expertise to capture and compress the CO2 from its hydrogen production facilities for the project. Together with its infrastructure of hydrogen production facilities and its storage cavern connected through its pipeline network across the Texas Gulf Coast, this project will enable Linde to supply cost-effective, reliable low carbon-hydrogen and, together with BP, provide carbon capture and storage solutions, the companies say.

The project will be a further important step in the development of BP’s low carbon business. BP is evaluating large-scale CCS and hydrogen projects for industrial clusters in the US and already is in action on Teesside, the industrial heart of the United Kingdom, the company says.

The overall development, expected to be operational as early as 2026, will also enable capture and storage of CO2 from other large industrial facilities in the region and could ultimately store up to 15 million metric tons per year across multiple onshore geologic storage sites – the equivalent of taking approximately 3 million cars off the road each year, the company says.
