Dubai’s international oil and gas company, ENOC Group, and Japanese heavy-industry manufacturer, IHI Corporation, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore a low-carbon hydrogen and low-carbon ammonia supply chain in the UAE.

As part of the agreement, both parties will complete corresponding studies for green ammonia production in the UAE. This will include a pre-feasibility and feasibility study for the pre-FEED (front end engineering design) and FEED studies for the demonstration plant, and pre-FEED and FEED for the full-scale production plant.

Saif Humaid Al Falasi, CEO of ENOC says: ‘At ENOC, we continue to explore partnerships that safeguard the future for generations to come. Our collaboration with IHI Corporation demonstrates our commitment to supporting the UAE’s energy transition efforts whilst advancing Dubai’s clean energy strategy 2050. We are excited to work with IHI Corporation to explore the potential of green ammonia production in the UAE.’

‘IHI believes green ammonia is one of the most practical, economical carbon-free fuel solutions with high volumetric hydrogen density and easy handling. The UAE is well positioned to produce and export green ammonia with its abundant renewable energy and robust maritime trade infrastructure, which cements its place as a critical hub for global shipping. This collaboration will help materialise Japan’s and UAE’s carbon reduction goals,’ says executive officer of IHI, Jun Kobayashi.

This partnership aligns with Dubai’s clean energy strategy 2050 and the UAE energy strategy 2050 to meet the country’s economic requirements and environmental goals.
