Project Announcement: Enabling large scale hydrogen storage

Hydrogen will play an important role in the energy transition as an energy carrier for Australia and globally. Moreover, Australia also has great opportunities to export hydrogen given its geographical and natural resources’ strengths. In this context, large-scale hydrogen storage in the subsurface has been proposed in existing salt caverns, depleted oil and gas reservoirs…

New findings from FEnEx CRC and UWA research show an 8% higher recovery rate of helium using non-cryogenic methods

FEnEx CRC and The University of Western Australia researchers Roman Weh, Gongkui Xiao, Ehsan Sadeghi Pouya and Eric May have found there is an 8% higher recovery rate of helium using non-cryogenic methods. Low-cost helium recovery processes optimised for unconventional sources e.g. small-scale natural gas (NG) reservoirs offer a new approach to meeting growing demand….
