Hydrogen in Oil and Gas – Thematic Research

Historically, hydrogen has been a key element in the manufacturing of several key industrial chemicals such as methanol and ammonia; but it is predominantly used as an ingredient in crude oil refining applications. The so-called ‘hydrogen economy’ seeks to disrupt these conventions and utilize hydrogen as a fuel. The prospects of the hydrogen economy are rooted in the fact that it is a clean-burning fuel and that it is abundantly available. Hydrogen can work in tandem with renewable energy from solar, wind, and other sources, and it can take the role of an energy carrier for renewable energy when deployed for electrification purposes.
