TotalEnergies SE is launching a Call for Tenders for the supply of 500,000 tonnes per year of green hydrogen as part of the drive to decarbonize its European refineries.

France-headed global multi-energy major TotalEnergies SE is launching a Call for Tenders for the supply of 500,000 tonnes per year of green hydrogen as part of the drive to decarbonize its European refineries. The use of green hydrogen should avoid the emission of around five million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually from the Company's European refineries by 2030.

TotalEnergies has six refineries in Europe – Antwerp (Belgium), Leuna (Germany), Zeeland (Netherlands), Normandy, Donges, and Feyzin (France) – as well as two biorefineries in La Mède and Grandpuits (France), all of which use hydrogen.

The Company wants to replace 500,000 tonnes per year of this hydrogen consumed in its refineries with green hydrogen produced with renewable energies by 2030.

This the Company says, is “a major step” towards achieving TotalEnergies’ objective of reducing the net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions directly linked to its oil and gas operations (Scopes 1 and 2) by 40 percent by 2030 compared to 2015 levels.

This massive call for tenders is fully aligned with TotalEnergies’ ambition to decarbonize all of the hydrogen used in its European refineries by 2030. Alongside other green and low-carbon hydrogen production projects that the Company is already undertaking at La Mède, Grandpuits, Leuna, and Normandy, we are now approaching third-party providers to supply us with green hydrogen to accelerate the decarbonization of our operations, said Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies.

TotalEnergies is committed to reducing the carbon footprint of producing, converting, and supplying energy to its customers.

One of the levers identified by the Company is to use green or low-carbon hydrogen to decarbonize its European refineries, a move that should help reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by around five million tonnes a year by 2030.

As a consequence, by offering various worldwide suppliers the opportunity to secure medium- and long-term contracts with TotalEnergies, we trust we will benefit from the most competitive solutions they have developed, said Patrick Pouyanné.

In addition to this Call for Tenders, hydrogen-related projects have already been announced at:

  • La Mède: The Masshylia project to produce green hydrogen for thebiorefinery’s needsis in progress in partnership with Engie.
  • Grandpuits: In November 2022,TotalEnergies and Air Liquidesigned a partnership agreement to develop an innovative, circular system for producing 20,000 tonnes a year of hydrogen that is partly renewable thanks to the recycling of residual biogas from the biorefinery.
  • Leuna: In June 2023, TotalEnergies andVNG, a German natural gas distribution company,signed an agreement for the future supply of green hydrogen to the Leuna refinery.
  • Normandy: In September 2023,TotalEnergies and Air Liquidesigned an agreement for the future supply of up to 15,000 tonnes per year of green and low-carbon hydrogen to the TotalEnergies complex in Normandy.
