The Global Energy Ventures Ltd (ASX: GEV) share price is leaping higher today, up 6% at time of writing, having earlier posted gains of more than 9%.

The company is focused on delivering compressed shipping solutions to produce, store and transport compressed hydrogen to regional markets surrounding Australia.

Below we take a look at the ASX energy share’s announcement that appears to be driving ASX investor interest.

What did Global Energy announce?

Global Energy’s share price is surging after the company reported it has entered into a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding MOU) with Province Resources Ltd (ASX: PRL) and Total Eren on a new green hydrogen shipping study.

The partnership will help determine the feasibility, both commercial and technical, of exporting compressed hydrogen from the HyEnergy Project in Western Australia to select markets in Asia-Pacific, making use of Global Energy’s compressed hydrogen marine supply chain.

Following completion of the study, Global Energy hopes the partners of the HyEnergy Project will have sufficient confidence to select its C-H2 marine transport supply chain for green hydrogen exports in the next phase of project engineering.

Commenting on the MOU, Global Energy’s managing director Martin Carolan said:

The HyEnergy Project is an ideal green hydrogen export project for our compressed hydrogen shipping solution given its strategic location on the W.A. Gascoyne coastline, within a regional distance to multiple Asian markets with a future requirement for imported hydrogen.

Province Resources CEO, David Frances added:

The HyEnergy Project partners are keen to understand the benefits of compressed hydrogen in relation to other means of transporting our potential green hydrogen product to market. GEV are leaders in this technology and will bring that experience to the study.

The non-binding, non-exclusive MOU expires on 31 December 2022.
