Technip Energies announced Aug. 29 that it has been awarded a significant contract by BP for a hydrogen-production unit at its Kwinana biorefinery in Western Australia, in support of the planned project to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel from biobased feedstocks.

A “significant” award for Technip Energies is a contract award representing between 50 million euros and 250 million euros (between USD$54.3 million and USD$271.6 million) of revenue.

The contract covers engineering, procurement and fabrication (EPF) of a modularized hydrogen-production unit with a capacity of 33,000 normal cubic meters per hour, using Technip Energies’ steam-methane reforming (SMR) proprietary technology.

Hydrogen is used for the conversion of biobased feedstocks into biofuels such as SAF and renewable diesel, also referred to as hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO).

The unit will be capable of producing hydrogen from either natural gas or biogas 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 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,” said Loic Chapuis, Technip Energies’ senior vice president of gas and low-carbon energies. “By leveraging our expertise in modularization and proprietary hydrogen technology, we are committed to making this project an industrial success.”

Technip Energies operates in 35 countries with 15,000 employees.
