Oklahoma, Other States Expanding Hydrogen Production

Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas are one step closer to expanding hydrogen production with federal approval after Oklahoma partnered with those states to submit a pitch for Project Halo.
The project is meant to expand clean hydrogen hubs through the region.
Now, the U.S, Department of Energy is encouraging the states to submit a full application.
Oklahoma Energy Secretary Ken McQueen said the state’s location is ideal to this venture.
“We believe that Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas, sitting in the middle of the United States, are ideally suited to land some of this funding,” McQueen said.
The Department of Energy will announce which programs across the U.S. will get funding next fall.
