French company to submit feasibility study for plant construction in Sakhalin by the end of the year

The Russian division of French company Air Liquide will develop a feasibility study (FS) for the construction of a hydrogen from natural gas and CO2 capture plant in Sakhalin by the end of 2021. According to documents on the government procurement website, the work will be commissioned by Rusatom Overseas.

The plant is supposed to produce 100 tons of hydrogen per day, but the terms of reference stipulate that "Air Liquide" is free to offer any other capacity with justification of the choice.

The company must also issue opinions and recommendations on further export of hydrogen to Japan and South Korea. To do so, it will have to conduct a market analysis of low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia in these countries, assess demand, identify potential customers and issue an opinion on the competitiveness of the project in the markets of Japan and South Korea.

Air Liquide is a global leader in gases production, technology development and services for industry and healthcare. Air Liquide is present in 78 countries. Air Liquide in Russia currently operates 18 production sites in key regions. More than 600 employees are responsible for the supply of products and services; the company's services are used by more than 1.7 thousand customers.
