Oman Signs MoU with Eden GeoPower to Explore Hydrogen

Oman’s Ministry of Energy and Minerals (MEM) has signed two memoranda of understanding with two companies – one from the US and the other from Oman – to assess the potential of geologic hydrogen exploration in the Sultanate.

The MoUs inked with American ‘Eden Geopower’ and the Omani Earth Sciences Consultancy Center represent a substantial stride in bolstering cooperation in this field.

These agreements have been meticulously designed to foster scientific dialogues, conduct in-depth preliminary studies, and pinpoint suitable locations for experimental research.

MEM Undersecretary Mohsen Hamad Al Hadrami underscored the strategic importance of geologic hydrogen within Oman’s comprehensive energy transition plan.

He expressed his enthusiasm for the expanding hydrogen sector, recognizing its significance not only from an economic standpoint but also for its potential contributions to environmental sustainability.

Hydrogen is poised to play an instrumental role in bolstering global energy security. Consequently, robust research and exploration in this sector are of paramount importance to attain the most favorable outcomes.

Moreover, Al Hadrami stressed the vital role of international collaboration and coordination with experts and partners in advancing the scientific and technical dimensions of geologic hydrogen.

These partnerships also serve as magnets for attracting investments, which are indispensable for unlocking the full potential of this clean energy
