Province Resources has spelled out its efforts to push ahead with its proposed HyEnergy green hydrogen project located near Carnarvon in Western Australia’s Gascoyne Region.
The project will take advantage of the region’s climate and wind patterns to install a commercial scale wind and/or solar farm to produce green hydrogen for use locally and for export.
The HyEnergy project is located close to the main Dampier-Bunbury natural gas pipeline along the WA coast and close to the major regional centre and export port at Carnarvon.
Province is now proceeding with a scoping study including data collection and is seeking Lead Agency Status and Intensive Project Facilitation from the WA government.
CEO David Frances said: “Globally we have seen more and more hydrogen projects being announced.
“Key market pricing predictions and technology developments…indicate this transition to green energy is happening even more rapidly than we anticipated.”
The company and the Shire of Carnarvon have signed a MOU to collaborate on a potential 12,311 hectare development site where heritage, ecological and geotechnical studies will commence shortly.
Staff recruitment is underway in the lead up to a future feasibility study.
Earlier this week the HyEnergy Project threw its weight behind efforts by Global Energy Ventures to develop a compressed hydrogen transport ship to export green hydrogen to Asia.
HyEnergy signed a memorandum of understanding with GEV to support its feasibility study into its proposed marine export chain.
Province Resources has been focused on the mineral exploration and development of copper, gold, nickel, cobalt, vanadium and other mineral opportunities.
