TotalEnergies and Air Products Sign Agreement for Green Hydrogen Delivery in Europe

10.06.2024 - Air Products and TotalEnergies have entered into a 15-year contract to annually deliver 70,000 tons of green hydrogen in Europe, commencing in 2030. This first long-term agreement is a response to TotalEnergies' tender for 500,000 tons of green hydrogen per year, aimed at reducing carbon emissions from TotalEnergies' European refineries.

Air Products will supply green hydrogen directly to TotalEnergies’ Northern European refineries, avoiding 700,000 tons of CO₂ annually. This contract is a key step toward TotalEnergies’ goal of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions from its oil and gas operations by 40% by 2030. Air Products has committed more than $15 billion to real, large-scale energy transition projects and launched several large low-carbon hydrogen projects globally.

“This deal with Air Products, the first signed following the call for tenders launched last year, is a steppingstone towards our goal of decarbonizing the hydrogen used in TotalEnergies’ refineries in Northern Europe by the end of the decade. We are proud to partner with Air Products, a pioneer in low carbon hydrogen production, under the leadership of Seifi Ghasemi. Once again, we demonstrate our capacity to pioneer the energy transition and contribute to the emergence of a green hydrogen industry by offering long-term contracts with our six refineries and two biorefineries in Europe. We are also happy to extend our partnership with Air Products by becoming ourselves a supplier of green power to Air Products and contributing to Air Products’ own decarbonization roadmap,” commented Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies. 

“Today, one of the largest energy companies in the world has committed to use renewable hydrogen to decarbonize its refineries in Northern Europe, and we at Air Products are honored and proud to be the producer and supplier of the green hydrogen required,” said Air Products’ Chairman, President and CEO Seifi Ghasemi. “We always believed that if we made clean hydrogen available at commercial scale, the demand would be there. This contract validates our long-term strategy. Clearly the demand is here, and it will grow significantly as we move forward, playing an essential role in decarbonizing heavy industry and other sectors. I also want to express my admiration for Mr. Patrick Pouyanné’s vision and courage in acting as a first-mover towards creating a cleaner future for the world.”

At the same time, TotalEnergies and Air Products have agreed on a memorandum of understanding for renewable power supply. This includes the initial Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for 150 MW from a Texas solar project. The companies also intend to jointly investigate additional PPA opportunities in the UK, Poland, and France. This agreement, which enhances the TotalEnergies and Air Products partnership, will support Air Products’ decarbonization efforts and align with TotalEnergies’ comprehensive electricity strategy.
