Technip Energies to supply hydrogen unit for bp’s Kwinana Biorefinery
bp Australia has reached the front-end engineering design (FEED) phase at its Kwinana Renewable Fuels project to repurpose its existing Kwinana Refinery in Western Australia (photo courtesy bp Australia).

The Netherlands-headed Technip Energies N.V., an international engineering and technology company for the energy transition, has announced that it has been awarded a "significant contract" by global oil, gas, and energy major bp plc for a hydrogen production unit at its Kwinana biorefinery in Western Australia.

Hydrogen is used for the conversion of bio feedstocks into biofuels such as sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel.

According to a statement, the contract is valued in EUR 50 million to EUR 250 million range and covers the Engineering, Procurement, and Fabrication (EPF) of a modularized hydrogen production unit with a capacity of 33 000 Nm3/hour, using Technip Energies’ proprietary steam methane reforming (SMR) technology.

The unit will be capable of producing hydrogen from either natural gas or renewable natural gas (RNG) produced by the Kwinana biorefinery.

It is planned to integrate with the site’s existing import terminal operations and plans for green hydrogen production, which are currently being assessed.

The Kwinana Renewable Fuels project is one of five biofuel production projects bp has planned globally.

We are pleased to build on our global leadership in the delivery of hydrogen production units to support bp’s expansion of its biofuels and sustainable aviation fuel businesses. By leveraging our expertise in modularization and proprietary hydrogen technology, we are committed to making this project an industrial success, commented Loic Chapuis, SVP of Gas and Low-carbon Energies of Technip Energies.
