Why TotalEnergies wants to sell its hydrogen production unit in Normandy to Air Liquide


The project risks worrying the ranks of the TotalEnergies refinery in Gonfreville (Seine-Maritime), known as the Normandy platform. The oil company wants to sell the activity of producing hydrogen by gas vapor reforming, with a capacity of 255 tonnes / day, to Air Liquide to decarbonize it. Air Liquide will study the installation in Gonfreville of its cryogenic CO2 capture technology, Cryocap, tested since 2015 on its site in Port-Jérôme (Seine-Maritime).

This blue hydrogen production unit would be connected to Air Liquide’s hydrogen network, to which it also intends to connect a new large-scale renewable hydrogen production unit by electrolysis (green hydrogen), planned with H2V. This will allow “To optimize its performance and eventually develop the world’s first low-carbon hydrogen network”, explains the industrialist in a press release published Tuesday, September 14.
