The project aims to develop the required policies to progress the energy transition’s strategic objectives and the interaction and integration with existing energy supply chains in relation to the energy transition’s key drivers.

According to the ministry, these drivers include green hydrogen, carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS), energy efficiency and renewable energy.

More than $45bn-worth of green hydrogen and green ammonia projects are being planned in Duqm, Salalah and Al-Wusta in Oman.

These include schemes being planned in partnership with the largest utilities, chemicals and downstream developers and investors such as Linde, Posco, Acwa Power, Air Products, Marubeni and Deme Group.

By the end of this year, the ministry aims to launch a broad policy framework underpinning the development of a renewables-based green energy industry in Oman, according to a local media report citing Abdulaziz Said al-Shidhani, the ministry's director-general of renewable energy and hydrogen.
