Multinational oil and gas company, BP, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the government of Mauritania to deliver an innovative programme exploring the potential for large-scale production of green hydrogen in the country.

BP will carry out a number of studies to evaluate the technical and commercial feasibility of producing green hydrogen in Mauritania.

Anja-Isabel Dotzenrath, BP’s executive vice president of gas and low carbon energy says: ‘We are already developing one of the world’s most innovative gas projects with the support of the Mauritanian government. And we now intend to expand our partnership into low carbon energy by exploring the potential for a world-leading green hydrogen development, which could position Mauritania at the forefront of the energy transition.’

BP will initially carry out a data collection campaign with studies assessing the suitability of wind and solar resources in selected locations for large-scale renewable power generation and green hydrogen production.
