Oman, India reach green hydrogen agreement

The government of Oman said August 23 through its official news agency that it signed a land reservation agreement with Indian clean energy company ACME for a planned green energy facility on the Arabian Sea.

The agreement relates to green hydrogen and ammonia development at a planned petrochemicals hub in Duqm, on the Omani coast. The first phase is a 250-500 MW facility at Duqm that is scheduled to come online in 2026. It will be built as part of a larger refining and petrochemicals hub under development there.

German utility company Uniper got in on the act in July by signing a co-operation agreement with Omani state enterprises to develop green ammonia from green hydrogen.

Oman earlier this month established a 13-member national council to develop a strategy for hydrogen production.
