Hydrogen Prospects and Its Synergies with the Natural Gas and LNG Industries & SPE WA Annual General Meeting

August 24, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

$40.00 – $70.00

Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is proud to present the details of our August Technical Evening Meeting.

Please note this presentation will be preceded by our Annual General Meeting.
These formalities each year take about 15 minutes; incorporating short reports from the past-Chair, incoming Chair, and the introduction of the incoming Board & Committees.

About the Presentation

Hydrogen is expected to play a role in a low carbon future, and Australia plans to be a major producer and exporter, but it remains to be seen if the universe’s most abundant element will be able to satisfy energy demand on a significant scale. This presentation provides an overview, examining the opportunities and constraints – from economic, technical and policy perspectives – in the coming decades. The talk will also focus on hydrogen synergies with the natural gas and LNG industries in Australia. Despite the synergies, successful development is found to depend heavily on cost-reducing technological progress and continuous policy support.
