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

approvals.

“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.”
