Province Resources has secured the first of its approvals for its HyEnergy green hydrogen project, with a licence granted for a site north of Carnarvon.
Province said the licence covers a 98.6 sq km site north of Carnarvon, planned to be the production site of the HyEnergy Project, as well as home to ‘some upsteam generation assets’.
According to the company, which is progressing discussions with the State Government and the Shire of Carnarvon on a long-term lease of the area, the fully-developed green hydrogen project would have a capacity of up to approximately 8GW.
Province Resources Managing Director David Frances said the section 91 licence allows the company to begin environmental and other on-ground studies on site to support a broader feasibility study for the project.
“This approval allows us to get on the ground to commence our environmental, heritage, geo technical and other survey work,” Mr Frances said.
“It means we get can get a better understanding of the physical properties of the location to support our concept selection process.
“We are looking forward to being on site in the coming weeks to begin this important work.
