The company has established and strengthened its dominant position in the market by demonstrating a keen understanding of market global energy trends and dynamics. The company for long has been involved in potential technologies to produce lower-carbon hydrogen from hydrocarbons, including Thermo-Neutral Reforming (TNR) and has been focused on producing ‘blue’ hydrogen by capturing the CO2 emissions from the production. It transports blue hydrogen in the form of blue ammonia. Beginning in 2020, the company has successfully showcased its potential to produce and ship blue ammonia. In March 2021, Aramco and ENEOS Corporation signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the purpose of exploring possible avenues for creating blue hydrogen and blue ammonia supply chains. Together the companies intend to assess the production of blue hydrogen and blue ammonia in Saudi Arabia using hydrocarbons like natural gas (NG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), along with the capture of the accompanying carbon dioxide emissions. Furthermore, ENEOS and Aramco aimed to examine different hydrogen chemical carriers, such as ammonia and MCH, for the transportation of hydrogen from Saudi Arabia to Japan and other global markets.
In August 2022, the company once again combined forces with its chemicals-production subsidiary SABIC to further the development of blue ammonia supply chains. Following this the company announced its intention to produce up to 11 million tons per annum of blue ammonia by 2030. In the same year Aramco and the SABIC Agri-Nutrients Company obtained the independent certifications recognizing “blue” hydrogen and ammonia production. The certifications were granted by TÜV Rheinland, a leading independent testing, inspection and certification agency based in Germany.
This recognition as a market leader by 360 Quadrants showcases Aramco's significant global impact in the blue hydrogen landscape. As the company leverages its vast experience and resources, it is likely to play a significant role in shaping the blue hydrogen landscape, contributing to a more sustainable energy future while maintaining its prominence in the global energy market.
