Mid West Clean Energy Project

Mid West Clean Energy Project (100% Pilot)

The MWCEP is a clean ammonia export project aiming to produce up to 1.2 million tonnes per annum of clean ammonia starting in 2027 with a cost base that is competitive with existing conventional grey ammonia production. The Project includes several sub-projects including carbon management for third parties, permanently storing the Project’s own CO2 associated with blue hydrogen production, through to the production of clean ammonia from blue and green hydrogen.

  • Brownfield redevelopment of the existing Cliff Head Oil Field’s facilities and the development of new onshore and offshore infrastructure.
  • Leveraging the long term operating history at Cliff Head and repurpose existing assets for CCS and clean energy production.
  • Can be delivered on an accelerated basis, when compared to developing a similar project on a green field basis

The Cliff Head Carbon Capture and Storage (CHCCS) project, which forms part of the overall MWCEP, aims to provide over 1 million tonnes per annum of permanent carbon capture & storage starting in early 2026 capturing both third party industrial CO2 emissions as well as ~99% of any CO2 generated by the MWCEP. Based on publicly available data, at 1 million tonnes per annum the Project is sufficiently sized to capture and permanently store the emissions associated with the onshore Perth basin gas projects and the Cockburn Dongara quicklime facility.

The CHCCS operation enables the production of blue hydrogen and ammonia with the proposed hydrogen production technology integrating the production of green hydrogen/ammonia. Importantly the Project will be designed to incorporate the future supply of hydrogen into the WA domestic market.
