ExxonMobil has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Norwegian firms Grieg Edge, North Ammonia, and GreenH for a feasibility study into using its Slagen oil and gas terminal in Norway for green hydrogen and ammonia distribution.
The terminal is already powered by hydroelectricity and the study will look at producing up to 20,000 tonnes of green hydrogen onsite, as well as distributing up to 100,000 tonnes of green ammonia. the green ammoia and hydrogen could be used for bunkering – Slagen terminal is ideally positioned at the opening of the Oslofjord, through which more than 10,000 ships pass every year.
“Slagen is an exceptionally suitable location as a central hub for hydrogen and ammonia to the maritime sector,”- says Matt Duke, CEO of Grieg Maritime Group. “With the complementary expertise amongst the MoU partners, we have now taken an important next step in our efforts to achieve emissions reductions in the maritime sector.”
