Worley secures FEED work for the CQ-H2 project

Worley have been awarded the front-end engineering and design (FEED) work for the Central Queensland Hydrogen (CQ-H2) Project. The project ranks in the global top 10 hydrogen projects at the pre-FID stage.

The project initially plans to install up to 640 MW of electrolysers and produce up to 200 tonnes of gaseous renewable hydrogen per day with offtakers purchasing the gas to convert to renewable ammonia or liquefied hydrogen. The project also aims to deliver renewable hydrogen via its different carriers, to Japan and Singapore, as well as supplying large domestic customers in Central Queensland.

The project is expected to support more than 8,900 new jobs, deliver USD 17.2bn in hydrogen exports, and add USD 12.4bn to Queensland’s Gross State Product over its 30-year life.

Commercial operations are expected to start in 2028. If successful, the project will ramp up in future phases to full-scale operations of approximately 2,240 MW of electrolyser capacity, capable of producing 800 tonnes per day of gaseous renewable hydrogen by 2031.
