Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has joined forces with Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) to develop low-carbon energy supply chains.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE)-Government-backed oil and gas company will work with MHI together to accelerate the development of global ammonia and low-carbon hydrogen value chains.

ADNOC and MHI will also explore the development and application of carbon management technologies.

ADNOC said low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia are key for decarbonising hard-to-abate industries and catering to the demand for cleaner feedstock for power generation.

The energy company is constructing a low-carbon ammonia production facility with a capacity of one million tonnes per annum in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.

Along with shipping multiple demonstration cargoes of low-carbon ammonia to customers in Germany and Asia, it increased its collaborations throughout the hydrogen value chain.

ADNOC executive-director of low-carbon solutions and international growth Musabbeh Al Kaabi said: “By matching Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ related technologies with our assets, we will not only assess opportunities to develop the important hydrogen and ammonia value chains but also explore synergies that have the potential to benefit ADNOC and the broader new energies ecosystem.”

MHI senior executive vice-president Hitoshi Kaguchi said: “It is a great honour to collaborate with a leading company in decarbonising hard-to-abate industry sectors, and in developing a low-carbon fuel value chain globally.

“We are looking forward to contributing to ADNOC’s net-zero ambition through our reliable technology in the coming projects under this agreement.”

Earlier this week, ADNOC and Azerbaijan state-owned oil company SOCAR teamed up to develop blue hydrogen, geothermal and carbon management technologies.

ADNOC’s announcements coincide with the ongoing two-week COP28 UAE climate summit in Dubai.

Last week, 50 companies, accounting for more than 40% of the world’s oil output, signed the Oil & Gas Decarbonization Charter at the climate summit.
