BP Planning Teeside Blue Hydrogen Plant (Int'l. Report)
BP
Date: 2021-04-12
In the UK, London-headquartered group BP reports it has begun a feasibility study for Britain's largest blue hydrogen plant to be constructed in Teeside , northern England, by 2030. The planned 1-GW facility will produce roughly 20 pct of Britain's target of 5 GW of hydrogen capacity by the end of the decade.

Blue hydrogen is produced by converting natural gas into hydrogen and storing the CO2 emissions from its production. The Teeside project could capture up to 98 pct of carbon emissions from the hydrogen production process.

BP Planning Teeside Blue Hydrogen Production Plant (Int'l.)
BP
Date: 2021-03-19
In the UK, oil giant BP is reporting plans to develop U2Teesaide, the country's largest blue hydrogen production facility, targeting 1GW of hydrogen production by 2030. The proposed development would capture and send for storage up to 2 million tpy of carbon -- equivalent to capturing the emissions from the heating of one million UK households.

Industries in Teesside account for over 5 pct of the UK's industrial emissions and the region is home to five of the country's top 25 emitters, according to BP.

With large-scale, low-cost production of clean hydrogen, H2Teesside could support the conversion of surrounding industries to use hydrogen in place of natural gas, playing an important role in decarbonizing a cluster of industries in Teesside, BP said. (Source: BP, PR, Website, OE, 18 Mar., 2021)

GE Planning New UK Offshore Wind Blade Plant (Int'l. Report)
GE Renewable Energy, LM Wind Power
Date: 2021-03-17
In the UK, GE Renewable Energy is reporting it LM Wind Power unit plans to open and operate a new manufacturing plant in Teeside for the production of offshore wind turbine blades. Financing and construction details are reportedly in advanced stages of negotiation and the plant is expected to open and start production in 2023 .

LM Wind Power plans to set up and operate this plant which will be dedicated to the production of its 107-meter- long offshore wind turbine blades, a key component of GE's Haliade-X, the most powerful offshore wind turbine in operation today.

UK £160Mn Wind Energy Investment Announced (Int'l. Report)
UK PM Boris Johnson
Date: 2020-10-07
In London, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a £160 million investment in wind power in a bid to fuel every home in the country with renewable energy within 10 years.

The announcement earmarks next-generation wind turbines for Teeside, Humber, Scotland and Wales as part of the government's plan to raise the country's renewable energy output from 30 to 40 GWs and become a "world leader in clean power."

According to the UK Committee on Climate Change (the CCC) the UK needs approximately 7,500 offshore wind turbines to meet a carbon emissions target of net-zero by 2050.

Net Zero Teesside Project Consortium Announced (Int'l. Report)
OGCI Climate Investments
Date: 2020-03-04
OGCI Climate Investments, a $1-billion investment fund of The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, is reporting the formation of a consortium of OGCI members -- BP, Eni, Equinor, Shell, and Total -- to accelerate the development of the Net Zero Teesside carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) project in the northeast of England.

Net Zero Teeside aims to capture up to 6 mtpa of CO2 emissions from local industries. There are also plans for a combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) facility with carbon capture technology which will provide low-carbon power as a complement to renewable energy sources and underpin the investment in the infrastructure. Net Zero Teesside also said it signed memorandums of understanding (MOUs) with three existing industrial partners demonstrating the strong local commitment to decarbonizing existing local industry.

Teesside Clean Gas, CCS Project Awarded £3.8 Mn (Int'l Funding)
OGCI Climate Investments
Date: 2019-07-03
In the UK, Teesside's Clean Gas project on the former SSI steelworks site could become the world's first gas-powered energy plant using carbon capture and storage (CCS)technology at scale with £3.8 million in funding from the federal government. The £18 million project was announced in November by OGCI Climate Investments.

Phase one is a huge power plant, which will run on natural clean gas and could be operational as early as 2024 or 2025. Construction is slated to get underway in 2020.

The UK Government has laid out plans for the UK to be a world-leader in the field of CCS, with its Clean Growth Strategy and last November's CCUS Action Plan.

OGCI companies set a target to reduce the collective average methane intensity of our aggregated upstream gas and oil operations to below 0.25 pct by 2025, with the ambition to achieve 0.20 pct. Starting from a baseline of 0.32 pct in 2017, reaching the 0.20 pct target would translate into greatly reducing our collective methane emissions by more than one-third -- approximately 600,000 tpy of methane -- by the end of 2025, according the OGCI website.

CropEnergies' Rebooting Teesside Bioethanol Plant (Int'l Report)
CropEnergies AG
Date: 2019-03-01
In the UK, German ethanol producer CropEnergies AG reports it will reopen its wheat ethanol production facility at Wilton, Teeside at reduced capacity this month. The facility uses UK produced wheat feedstock to produce ethanol.

Previously, the plant was mothballed in 2011, two years after opening, due to US competition and dwindling demand. Production restarted in October 2012 but paused again in April 2013 because of rising energy costs and a poor harvest. CropEnergies AG acquired the facility in July 2013, rebooted production the following October, stopped production in early 2015 and restarted again in 2016.
