Gazprom collaborating on hydrogen energy technologies with Russian scientists

A meeting of Gazprom's Sustainable Development Council led by Oleg Aksyutin, Deputy Chairman of the Management Committee – Head of Department, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), and Nikolai Kasimov, Member of the RAS, took place in St. Petersburg.

The meeting discussed the completed and planned joint studies conducted by Gazprom and the RAS in the field of hydrogen energy. The studies aim to solve scientific challenges in the area of hydrogen production in the most environmentally-friendly and cost-efficient way, i.e. by producing hydrogen from natural gas, as well as challenges pertaining to hydrogen transportation. The outcomes of the joint studies will also be factored into Gazprom's sustainable development scenarios up to 2050.

The Sustainable Development Council noted the key role and significant potential of natural gas in the development of low-carbon hydrogen energy. Presentations at the meeting were made by, among others, Professor Valentin Parmon, Vice President and Member of the RAS, and Professor Anton Maximov, Corresponding Member of the RAS.
