Other partnerships include a feasibility study for a low-carbon hydrogen project in the UAE and an expanded ADNOC-BP-Masdar partnership to explore the production of sustainable aviation fuels from municipal waste and green hydrogen in Abu Dhabi.


Masdar and BP will also explore potential collaboration on HyGreen Teesside, BP’s green hydrogen project powered by
offshore wind in the UK’s Teesside industrial cluster.

The new partnership builds on framework agreements signed during a September 2021 visit to the UK by UAE President Sheikh
Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan.

Commenting on the agreements, Dr. Sultan bin Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology, ADNOC Managing Director and Group CEO, and Masdar Chairman, said: “ADNOC and Masdar’s deepened partnership with bp is a testament to the UAE and UK’s longstanding track record of bilateral partnership in sustainability as well as the UAE’s intent to play a leading role in the fast-growing clean hydrogen economy both domestically and internationally.

“To that end, we welcome the opportunity to collaborate with bp in both the UAE and UK, laying the groundwork for a deeper commercial partnership in the area of new energies and clean technologies. In the UK, our role in Teesside will represent ADNOC’s first investment into the UK and help to accelerate innovation in the decarbonisation of energy in industrial sectors. Similarly, the partners’ collaboration in Abu Dhabi is expected to further position the UAE as a leader in low-carbon energies and technology-driven industrial growth.”
