Port of Corpus Christi to House Green Hydrogen

Texas’ Port of Corpus Christi could soon be the location of a green hydrogen production, storage, transportation and export operation.

Apex Clean Energy completed a Memorandum of Understanding with EPIC Midstream Holdings, funds managed by the Infrastructure and Power strategy of Ares Management Corporation, and the Port of Corpus Christi Authority (PCCA) for the project, which would include a newly constructed dedicated pipeline and a green fuels hub. The project would support the production of green hydrogen and other derivative green fuels that could be increasingly scaled throughout the decade.

Furthermore, Apex will use its portfolio of wind and solar assets currently in development in Texas to power the facilities producing green hydrogen. EPIC will support the construction and operation of a new pipeline, while existing and new storage, processing and export infrastructure on land owned by PCCA would also be deployed. 

This is the second Memorandum of Understanding between Ares and PCCA for the development of renewable energy infrastructure on PCCA-owned property for the purpose of green hydrogen production.

“This initiative is exactly the type of interdisciplinary collaboration that would enable scalable projects that move the needle on diversification of the energy marketplace,” Jeff Pollack, chief strategy and sustainability officer for the Port of Corpus Christi, said in a statement. “This monumental potential project would directly contribute to the burgeoning clean hydrogen hub at the Port of Corpus Christi and would directly support our ambitions to cultivate world-scale hydrogen exports as our part in national decarbonization and energy balance of trade objectives.”
