Oman creates hydrogen alliance


Oman’s ministry of energy and minerals (MEM) is establishi­ng a national hydrogen alliance to chart the course for the country’s hydrogen economy. Branded Hy-Fly, the alliance will facilitate and sustain the developmen­t and deployment of clean hydrogen in Oman. Hy-Fly is made up of 13 key public and private organisati­ons encompassi­ng government bodies, oil and gas operators,

educationa­l and research institutes as well as ports who will work together to support and facilitate the production, transport and utilisatio­n of clean hydrogen for domestic

use and export.

In the run-up to achieving this, the alliance will promote clean hydrogen through investment­s, technologi­es, policies, and expertise across the whole hydrogen supply chain.

This will support national energy security and a transition

to the green economy.

The alliance will be led by MEM,

facilitate­d by PDO’s Energy Renewal unit, with participat­ion

from the Authority for Public Services Regulation, Petroleum

Developmen­t Oman, Energy Developmen­t Oman, OQ, Oman LNG, BP Oman, Oman Shell and

Total Energies Oman, Sultan Qaboos University, GUTech and the ports of Sohar and Duqm. This alliance is a milestone in Oman’s drive to diversify its energy mix while addressing

climate change realities.
