Shell Chosen By DOE

A consortium led by a Shell subsidiary has been selected by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to demonstrate the feasibility of large-scale liquid hydrogen (LH2) storage. The consortium comprises Shell International Exploration and Production, McDermott’s CB&I Storage Solutions, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, GenH2 and the University of Houston.
