Description

A hydrogen facility producing up to 1 billion cubic feet per day of blue hydrogen.

The carbon capture infrastructure for this project would have the capacity to transport and store up to 10 million metric tons of CO2 per year, more than doubling ExxonMobil’s current capacity.

Using hydrogen as a fuel at the Baytown olefins plant could reduce the integrated complex’s Scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions by up to 30%.

Access to surplus hydrogen and CO2 storage capacity would be made available to nearby industries.

A final investment decision for the project is expected by 2024, subject to stakeholder support, regulatory permitting, and market conditions.

In March 2024, JERA reached a Project Framework Agreement with ExxonMobil to jointly explore the development of the project.
