At Phillips 66, we believe many forms of energy will be needed in a sustainable energy future. We see promise in hydrogen and are working to leverage our expertise and expand our capabilities to capture market share and growth.

Refuelling the Humber Refinery project

This project aims to fuel the Humber Refinery’s industrial heaters with up to 100% lower-carbon hydrogen to support the reduction of carbon emissions. The heaters are integral to the refining process because they provide the heat necessary to convert hydrocarbons to transportation fuels and other products used in everyday society.

Currently, the project is at a feasibility study stage working closely with chosen contractors Worley and burner manufacturer John Zink International.

Refuelling the Humber Refinery is an important project we are progressing as it will allow the Humber Refinery to use the low carbon hydrogen to lower the refinery’s GHG emissions.

Phillips 66 Limited has to-date committed £500,000 to this project. UK Research and Innovation, the largest source of public funding for research and innovation in the UK, has matched the funding through its Industrial Energy Transformation Fund.
