Korea Gas Corp. (KOGAS) plans to make 2022 the starting point to make a leap forward to become Korea’s hydrogen platform provider. 

KOGAS decided to set this year as a “golden time” for determining the next 30 years of KOGAS.

To this end, KOGAS has set five core tasks: Working out specific action plans to realize carbon neutrality and achieving the early introduction of green hydrogen; expanding new energy businesses such as LNG cold energy and overseas gas to power projects and developing new business models; thorough demand-supply management and strengthening marketing activities of an individual pricing system; building a top-rated safety management regime; and implementing of a transition to digital-based work process and organizational innovation. 

As for the hydrogen business, KOGAS held a ground-breaking ceremony to build a hydrogen production center in Gwangju last December. 

The corporation plans to build hydrogen facilities in areas such as Changwon and Pyeongtaek, corresponding to each region’s conditions and demand characteristics. 

KOGAS plans to produce 830,000 tons of hydrogen annually in 2030 or later while seeking to produce green hydrogen in Southeast Asia and Australia with renewable energies, such as wind power and photovoltaic power. 

KOGAS plans to supply a combined 1.03 million tons of hydrogen to Korea by introducing 200,000 tons of green hydrogen in the course of implementing overseas green hydrogen production. 

KOGAS plans to build a combined 152 hydrogen charging stations by 2030. 

The corporation plans to set up 90 liquefied hydrogen charging stations in keeping with building mobility hydrogen infrastructure in Pyeongtaek and Tongyeong. KOGAS plans to run Gimhae and Daegu “innovative city” charging stations. 

The corporation plans to set up 60 gaseous hydrogen charging stations through collaboration with the private sector like the hydrogen energy network “Hynet.”
