Santos declines two federal grants for hydrogen project design

Brandon How

Oil and gas giant Santos has rejected two federal government grants intended to support the design of blue hydrogen projects, originally announced a year and a half ago.

The two $3 million grants were expected to fund front-end engineering and design (FEED) studies for blue hydrogen production – hydrogen produced from natural gas, with the process low emissions by using carbon capture and storage (CCS).

The grants were announced in April 2022 by then-Energy minister Angus Taylor, alongside local members, in the run up to the last federal election. They were awarded under the Coalition government-initiated Clean Hydrogen Industrial Hubs: Hub Development and Design Grants program.
