Underground Hydrogen Storage Workshop

2 December 2022, 8:30am-5pm, 137 St George’s Terrace Hydrogen is an important element in the energy transition and meeting aspirations of global decarbonisation. To facilitate the development and deployment of a hydrogen supply chain, largescale hydrogen storage is of vital importance. Underground Hydrogen Storage (UHS) offers the potential for large volume storage to normalise cyclic…

Project Announcement: Simulation and testing of cryogenic ortho-para conversion in hydrogen liquefaction processes

Hydrogen liquefaction is a highly energy intensive process. Therefore, efficient hydrogen liquefaction processes are a priority for establishing future energy markets. When compared with established energy commodities, such as LNG, there are significant gaps in knowledge related to the properties of hydrogen relevant to the liquefaction process, which in turn introduces relatively large uncertainty in…

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….
