They will target integrated and scaleable opportunities in key sectors that hydrogen could help decarbonize, especially around industrial cluster development and the transport sector, focusing on the London metropolitan area.

The collaboration will exploit both companies’ expertise in delivering large and technically complex energy projects.

It is also expected to help create a viable path for innovation and investments in low carbon fuels and technologies across the UK’s energy sector.

QP launched a new sustainability strategy to reduce the emissions intensity of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities by 25%, MEED reported earlier this year.

The new strategy aims to end routine flaring by 2030 and limit fugitive methane emissions. It also set a methane intensity target of 0.2% across all facilities by 2025.

Through the strategy, QatarEnergy has committed to using carbon capture and storage (CCS) facilities to draw more than seven million tonnes a year (Mt/y) of carbon. In December 2020, QatarEnergy said it planned to sequester this amount of carbon dioxide (CO₂) by 2027.
