UTAH – CHEVRON ACQUIRES MAJORITY STAKE IN HYDROGEN STORAGE PROJECT
Chevron U.S.A., through its Chevron New Energies division, announced it has closed a transaction with Haddington Ventures to acquire 100% of Magnum Development, and thus a majority interest in ACES Delta which is a joint venture between Mitsubishi Power Americas, Inc. (Mitsubishi Power) and Magnum Development. ACES Delta is developing the Advanced Clean Energy Storage project in Delta, Utah.
The Advanced Clean Energy Storage project plans to use electrolysis to convert renewable energy into hydrogen and will utilize solution-mined salt caverns for seasonal, dispatchable storage of the energy. The first project, designed to convert and store up to 100 metric tons per day of hydrogen, is under construction and is expected to enter commercial-scale operations in mid-2025 to support the Intermountain Power Project’s “IPP Renewed” initiative. Several other opportunities for the project to produce and supply hydrogen to customers in the utility, transportation and industrial sectors in the western region of the United States are in development.
