[Minister Dan Tehan MP’s visit to South Korea]

During Minister Dan Tehan MP’s trip to South Korea, SK E&S and the Australian Government agreed to work together to collaborate on eco-friendly gas field.

In Seoul, SK E&S CEO Choo met with Minister Tehan, Australian Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment and discussed collaboration opportunities in Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) based on eco-friendly technology. SK E&S recently announced their investment in developing the Barossa-Caldita gas fields in northern Australia.

CEO Choo said “The Australian gas fields will be developed in an eco-friendly way to capture 100% of the carbon dioxide with the CCS technology and store it in a waste gas field. We plan to use the #LNG imported from Australia’s Barossa-Caldita gas field as a raw material for #bluehydrogen which is a clean hydrogen.”

Minister Tehan said “natural gas will play a major role in the future of Korea’s energy transition. “The Australian Government will strongly support eco-friendly ways of gas field development.”
