The Gladstone Energy and Ammonia Project (GEAP) is Australia’s largest and most advanced clean hydrogen production project to date. Located on a 129 hectares site outside of Gladstone, the GEAP will be integrated with adjacent gas, fertiliser, explosives, water and power infrastructure.
Site has direct access to Queensland Gas Pipeline, water pipeline, mains electrical power, and rail.
The GEAP is also within the designated Qld Government preferred industrial site to facilitate third party Green Hydrogen production R&D and demonstration projects.
AFE’s Gladstone project (Stage 1) intends to consume all products locally to lock in the economic sustainability / minimising the complexity of long-distance transport – offtake arrangements for ammonia and gas are in place.
Production is expected to commence in July 2024, with the manufacture of 91,000 tonnes of clean hydrogen per annum (via the production of ammonia) at $US 1.50 per kilogram.
