Call for Papers in 2024


Be part of our conferences promoting a new energy future and the transition of our industry towards that future. We are looking for stories about the development of technology and best practices affecting Natural Gas processing. As well as a look at Hydrogen, Biogas, Ammonia, Carbon Capture and Storage, and LNG amongst others, to inspire the gas processing community.

GPA Europe

"Promoting Technical and Operational Excellence in The European Gas Processing Industry"

Who are we?

A bit of background

GPA founded in the US in the 1920's. In 1983, GPA Europe was established as a parallel organisation.


We currently have over 200 members, including the great majority of European gas companies. We aim to provide a forum to share ideas by bringing together business and technical leaders from a range of gas processing organisations across 20+ countries.


We are a not for profit organisation that brings players of the European Gas Industry together to do business around technical stories.


Here at GPA Europe, our role is two-fold:

1  GPA Europe promotes technical and operational excellence

2  GPA Europe serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas and information

How can we help you?

We will be highlighting a paper of particular interest from our archives each month.

Paper of the Month

This month we are looking back to a paper from Chet Biliyok, Petrofac. Presented during our Virtual Event Series, April 2022.

"The Challenges of Delivering a Large-Scale Green Hydrogen Project"

"In an emissions-constrained world, hydrogen will likely play a significant role in decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors, residential heating, transportation, and flexible power generation. Thus, green hydrogen generation via water electrolysis using renewable energy will need to be rapidly scaled up and deployed.

In Q1 2021, Petrofac delivered a front-end engineering design for the Arrowsmith Hydrogen Plant, a 25 tonnes/day green hydrogen production facility, the first phase of a staged development by Infinite Blue Energy Group.

Several challenges were encountered that are specific to hydrogen projects – the selection of the appropriate hydrogen production technology, the intermittency of the renewable energy, wastewater management, large scale hydrogen storage, equipment supply chain limitations and HSE challenges. These challenges are not the typical engineering problems faced in designing gas processing facilities and were addressed by a combination of a systems design approach, the unorthodox use of equipment, and good engineering practices that remain valid no matter the process or the industry under consideration.

With hydrogen on the ascendency, and similar projects expected to proliferate over the next few years, it is concluded that location of the plant will be a primary enabler for projects. In this particular case, Western Australia possesses abundant renewable resources that facilitates reliable and cheap renewable power generation, which then results in competitive green hydrogen prices. Presently, such conditions are not accessible in all regions around the world, therefore financial viability of green hydrogen deployment needs to be considered on a case-by-case basis."
