Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and GE Gas Power (GE) have announced a joint cooperation initiative to develop a decarbonization roadmap that includes reducing carbon emissions from gas turbines used to power ADNOC’s downstream and industry operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Under the terms of the initiative, ADNOC and GE will explore using hydrogen and hydrogen-blended fuels for lower-carbon power generation; evaluating introducing ammonia as a fuel to power ADNOC’s GE gas turbines; integrating carbon capture solutions at ADNOC’s power generation facilities; and joint research and development programs to develop solutions to reduce carbon emissions from gas-based power generation.
“ADNOC’s initiative with GE reinforces our commitment to support the UAE’s goal to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 and our ongoing commitment to decarbonizing our operations,” said Ahmed Omar Abdulla, senior vice president of refining and petrochemical asset management at ADNOC. “This agreement is in line with our energy transition strategy and underscores our commitment to sound environmental stewardship while meeting the needs of the world’s growing energy demands. Working together with GE to develop sustainable solutions for power generation also furthers our ambitions to progress hydrogen as a future fuel and will leverage our capabilities in carbon capture and storage.”
