HOUSTON, TX, May 6, 2022/CNW/ – Enbridge Inc. (Enbridge) (TSX: ENB) (NYSE:
ENB) and Humble Midstream, LLC (Humble), an EnCap Flatrock Midstream portfolio
company, are pleased to announce the joint development and marketing of a lowcarbon
hydrogen and ammonia production and export facility which will be located at
the Enbridge Ingleside Energy Center (EIEC), near Corpus Christi, Texas.
Enbridge and Humble plan to develop a utility scale ultra-low carbon production facility,
capable of supplying both low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia to meet the growing
global and domestic demand. Up to 95 percent of the carbon dioxide (CO2) generated
in the production process will be sequestered in newly developed carbon capture
infrastructure, including facilities to be owned and operated by Enbridge, making this a
fully integrated low-carbon solution. Enbridge’s affiliate, Texas Eastern Transmission
Pipeline, is expected to provide the transportation service for feed gas that will be used
for the production process. Both hydrogen and ammonia have zero CO2 emissions at
the point of use.
Enbridge and Humble intend to jointly market the capacity of the facility and are in
discussions with several potential offtake customers. The construction of any facilities
will be subject to sufficient customer support and receipt of all necessary regulatory
“This is a good example of how Enbridge is leveraging existing conventional energy
assets and capabilities to extend growth and capitalize on low carbon opportunities in
the energy transition,” said Colin Gruending, Enbridge Executive Vice President and
President, Liquids Pipelines. “The EIEC is already the premier export facility on the U.S.
Gulf Coast and will play an even greater role in global energy security and sustainability.
We’re excited to work with Humble to further develop this opportunity.”
“Humble is pleased to be joining Enbridge in this first-mover effort to develop clean
energy alternatives on a world-class scale,” said Humble Midstream CEO Steven
Huckaby. “We believe the midstream expertise of both companies positions us well to
provide affordable hydrogen and ammonia to a marketplace seeking low carbon
alternative fuels. Our team is glad to be partnered with EnCap Flatrock Midstream to
pursue this opportunity, a natural extension of their longstanding midstream strategy.”
