Bill Gates prompts IOCs to produce green H2

Skillsets developed for oil and gas production could be applied to green hydrogen—even if costs may never be low enough for all applications

Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates encouraged oil and gas companies to get involved in the production of green hydrogen as their skillsets are a great fit for the emerging industry, at CeraWeek yesterday. “Green hydrogen may need to play a very gigantic role, and a lot of the skillsets involved there are from the oil and gas industry,” he said. He also said that sequestering carbon—a key component of creating blue hydrogen—was also a challenge that could benefit from oil and gas industry expertise. He suggested that oil and gas firms were well placed to create green hydrogen from alternative methods, beyond electrolysing water. “Green hydrogen is more in [the oil a
