Blue hydrogen and substitute natural gas seen as leaders in energy transition

A paper published by the Journal of Petroleum Technology suggests hydrogen is the most promising low-carbon-intensity energy vector while substitute natural gas – among hydrocarbon-based fuels – is the most promising and immediate solution.

The potential to obtain low-carbon-intensity hydrogen is seen as a crucial factor toward driving the energy transition and achieving a low-carbon future.

While blue hydrogen can significantly reduced emissions, it still produces some C02. Biohydrogen, on the other hand, is carbon-neutral and derived through modified steam reforming of liquid biofeedstock. It can be carbon negative when enhanced with a carbon-capture system.

    its absolutely vital that blue hydrogen only be made from methane produced from sewerage or similar biofuel feedstock. we cannot be pumping the feedstock from underground.
    But watch out for green hydrogen from the middle east and Oz where companies are putting gigawatts of solar farms and producing green hydrogen from it. That is where i would invest.
    Oil companies need to go to the wall, unless they can change their spots.
