Ørsted and Williams have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to explore potential jointly developed Power-to-X projects in the USA.
Through the MOU, the two companies are identifying ways to leverage Ørsted’s renewables and hydrogen expertise with Williams’ natural gas infrastructure and processing experience to co-develop hydrogen or synthetic natural gas facilities powered by renewable energy. As part of this agreement, the parties are exploring a large-scale wind energy, electrolysis, and synthetic gas-via-methanation co-development in western Wyoming where Williams owns land area and natural gas infrastructure. Williams’ energy infrastructure network, which handles 30 percent of the natural gas used for power generation, heating, and industrial use in the USA, is adaptable to future renewable energy storage and transport.
