Hydrogen Oman (Hydrom) announced in 2023 the launch of new green hydrogen projects within the Sultanate of Oman with several developers.
In March 2023, several commercial agreements were signed between Hydrom and the Ministry of Energy and Minerals of Oman for six green hydrogen projects located near Duqm and Salalah ports. The projects involve:
- BP Alternative Energy Investments Limited (for a project in Duqm and another in Dhofar)
- Green Energy Oman (GEO)
- Green Hydrogen Chemicals SPC (owned by ACME)
- Hyport Duqm consortium
- SalalaH2 consortium.
These green hydrogen projects are part of a broader strategy for green hydrogen promoted by the Sultanate of Oman who issued the Royal Decree 10/2023 in February 16th defining the scope of green hydrogen projects and allocating land for renewable energy and clean hydrogen projects.
