The latest partnership expands on a strategic technology collaboration signed by the companies in November last year.
The collaboration will make use of Baker Hughes‘ expertise in hydrogen and technological capabilities.
It will also leverage and explore the application of technologies Baker Hughes has invested in from Nemesys, Levidian and Ekona Power.
Nemesys’ next-generation electrolyser technology will be tested at the Adnoc Research and Innovation Centre in Abu Dhabi.

Levidian’s methane plasma technology will undergo field testing to collect carbon in the form of superior graphene and hydrogen in the facilities of Adnoc Gas.
The partnership will also evaluate the use of Ekona Power’s growth-stage methane pyrolysis technology to produce low-greenhouse gas intensity hydrogen.
Adnoc executive director, low carbon solutions and international growth directorate Musabbeh Al Kaabi said: “The unique properties of graphene make it a promising agent to help decarbonise a variety of hard-to-abate sectors while hydrogen can serve to accelerate decarbonisation as it does not generate any carbon emissions at the point of use.
“Across Adnoc, we are proactively pursuing a strategy to accelerate the production and deployment of low-carbon and renewable hydrogen.”
The agreement is part of the oil giant’s $15bn investment plan unveiled this year to decarbonise its operations.
Baker Hughes chairman and CEO Lorenzo Simonelli said: “We are proud to support Adnoc on its continuing journey to deploy new climate technology solutions that can advance the global energy transition.
“Collaboration is crucial to supporting and accelerating the growth of low-carbon energy sources. This agreement is a further testament to Baker Hughes’ strategy and commitment toward transforming the energy industry to support global climate change goals.”
