Hydrogen export costs could drive users to supply regions

High transportation costs could mean consumer industries sprout around sources of supply

High transportation costs could drive industries such as steel manufacturing to move to regions where hydrogen is produced, according to Saudi Aramco’s chief technology officer, Ahmad al-Khowaiter. Transportation costs for hydrogen are far higher than those for natural gas and oil because hydrogen molecules are volatile and difficult to liquefy. "There’s a big incentive for industries like steel to move to where the source of the blue and green hydrogen is" Khowaiter, Aramco “There’s a big incentive for industries like steel to move to where the source of the blue and green hydrogen is,” says Khowaiter. Hydrogen-reliant industries could mirror the trend seen in primary alumin
