10.20.2023 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

October 20, 2023 [MEMO]- A Blue Hydrogen and Ammonia project being proposed by Oman Shell for planned implementation at Duqm has the potential to underpin the country’s transition to large-scale adoption of sustainable zero-carbon fuels, such as green hydrogen.


According to the report, the implementation of a Blue Hydrogen project could serve as a crucial stepping-stone towards the widespread adoption of zero-carbon Green Hydrogen in Oman, according to Oman Shell.

Oman Shell’s Senior Vice President and Country Chair, Walid Hadi said the proposed project’s location in Duqm will open opportunities for the supply of blue hydrogen to industrial customers at the Port of Duqm and in SEZAD.

“Shell is working to advance hydrogen opportunities in key regions where we have competitive advantage and strong adjacencies with our existing business. We aim to deliver these opportunities to demonstrate the commercial viability of hydrogen and, meanwhile, maintain a healthy funnel of emerging opportunities that give us the foundations and flexibility to pursue options in time,” said Oman Shell.

Report says blue ammonia is also expected to be exported to international markets. As for the CO2 that will be captured from these production processes, it will be stored under a collaborative arrangement reached with Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), the largest producer of oil and gas in Oman.
