CB&I signs MoU with Korea Gas Corp.
McDermott's storage business, CB&I, and Korea Gas Corp. In 2021, South Korea announced plans to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 by replacing coal-fired power generation with renewable sources and internal combustion engine vehicles with hydrogen-powered and battery-based electric vehicles (EVs).
KOGAS has grown into the largest LNG-importing company in the world, and operates four LNG regasification terminals and 4945 km of natural gas pipelines in South Korea. "Hydrogen has emerged as a key enabler to meet these decarbonisation goals and KOGAS will play a leading role in building the infrastructure for hydrogen shipping, storage and distribution to make these ambitions a reality," said Seung Lee, Executive Vice President of KOGAS.
CB&I specialises in designing and building field-erected pressure spheres capable of storing liquid hydrogen at temperatures of -423°F, and is nearing completion of the world's largest liquid hydrogen sphere in Cape Canaveral, Florida, US. "Viable storage solutions on both ship and shore will be fundamental for South Korea to realise its carbon neutrality goals," said Cesar Canals, Senior Vice President of CB&I.
