The Whyalla Hydrogen Pipeline forms part of the South Australian Government’s Hydrogen Jobs Plan (HJP) under which the SA Government has committed to building a large-scale hydrogen production facility and power station in Whyalla, anticipated to be operational in early 2026.

As part of the HJP, Epic Energy has entered into an agreement with the Office of Hydrogen Power South Australia to progress the engineering and approvals processes for the Whyalla Hydrogen Pipeline.

The key components of the Whyalla Hydrogen Pipeline are:

  • A compressor station and inlet facility at the HJP Whyalla Hydrogen Facility to compress the hydrogen for injection into the pipeline.
  • A buried pipeline, designed to store and transport hydrogen, estimated to be 45km long and 900mm nominal diameter.
  • An end of line valve station at, or near, Fitzgerald Bay Road Port Bonython.

Community Consultation

We recognise the importance of early and transparent consultation with the community and stakeholders. Feedback is important to us and will be taken into consideration in the final design and location of the Whyalla Hydrogen Pipeline.

This consultation is underway and will be ongoing throughout the construction and operation of the Whyalla Hydrogen Pipeline. However, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly.

Epic Energy recognises the traditional owners of the land on which the Whyalla Hydrogen Pipeline project will take place, the Barngarla people. Epic Energy pays its respects to their Elders past and present and respects the Barngarla people’s spiritual and cultural connection to Country.
