Hydrogen is a natural extension of our core business. ADNOC is already a producer of over 300,000 tonnes of hydrogen per year; used largely for industrial purposes in our downstream facilities. We are exploring opportunities in hydrogen to leverage the UAE’s expansive gas reserves, abundant renewable energy, and global infrastructure and partnerships.
We are leveraging our existing infrastructure and commercial-scale CCUS capabilities to enable the UAE a major role in the emerging hydrogen market. The successful completion of ADNOC’s Al-Reyadah CCUS facility in 2016 marked an important milestone in our journey to meet our commitments to emissions reduction and supporting the UAE’s efforts towards decarbonizing the nation’s economy.
