TC Energy Corporation is reviewing its concept for a hydrogen production hub on 140 acres in Crossfield, Alberta, where the company runs a natural gas storage facility, with the help and input of their partner Nikola Corporation.

During the first-ever Canadian Hydrogen Convention in Edmonton, Alberta, the plan will be highlighted. TC Energy anticipates making a final investment decision by the end of 2023.

“At TC Energy, we are energy problem solvers,” said Corey Hessen, Executive Vice President, and President, Power, Storage & Origination. “With our focus on creating low-carbon solutions for businesses, we’ve identified our Crossfield site as a hub to produce and distribute hydrogen to serve long-haul transportation, power generation, large industrials and heating customers across the United States and Canada.”

Nikola, a global leader in zero-emissions transportation and energy infrastructure solutions, will be the hub’s anchor customer for its long-haul fuel cell electric vehicles.

The proposed hub may create up to 150 tonnes of hydrogen per day with a capacity of 60 tonnes per day. Natural gas is treated in a chemical plant to separate hydrogen and carbon dioxide in order to make hydrogen. The CO2 produced during this process is subsequently trapped and sequestered, cutting emissions and allowing the facility to fulfil clean-energy criteria.

The TC Energy Crossfield Gas Storage facility has a capacity of 68 billion cubic feet of natural gas.
