Integrated energy and chemicals company, Aramco, and Indonesia’s national energy company, Pertamina (Persero), have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore the hydrogen and ammonia value chain.

The MoU involves a pre-feasibility study to assess the possibility of cooperation related to the development of a clean ammonia and hydrogen value chain. It includes potential carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) at Pertamina Group’s existing facilities and other agreed potential locations.

Clean ammonia and hydrogen development have significant roles in Indonesia’s 2060 net zero emissions roadmap and the country is expected to be a key player in green hydrogen production in Asia.

Aramco senior vice president of downstream, Mohammed Al Qahtani, says: ‘As a company, our ambition is to achieve net-zero scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions across our wholly-owned operated assets by 2050. Our work in developing new ammonia and hydrogen energy pathways will be pivotal in achieving that goal while helping to advance an affordable, equitable and more sustainable transition for all.’

‘The energy transition should not jeopardise energy security and affordability, especially for countries that are still dependent on fossil fuels. That’s why Pertamina has developed a decarbonisation program through CCUS. Hydrogen and ammonia are expected to play a key role in a future climate-neutral economy, enabling emission-free power generation, heavy transport, heating and industrial processes,’ adds president director of Pertamina, Nicke Widyawati.
