Increasing expectations about the role hydrogen will play in the global energy system

Saudi and the Japan Energy Economics Institute (IEEJ), in partnership with the Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC), announced the successful production and export of the first shipment of blue ammonia from Saudi Arabia to Japan, with the support of the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).

Aramco said in a statement today that forty tons of high-quality blue ammonia had been exported to Japan; For use in carbon-free energy generation.

She added that the challenges associated with shipping blue ammonia to Japan have been met; For use in power plants; Where 30 tons of carbon dioxide was captured during the process designated for use in methanol production at SABIC’s Ibn Sina facility, and another 20 tons of captured carbon dioxide were used to improve the oil recovery (EOR) process in the Uthmaniyah field.

SABIC and Mitsubishi, represented in the study team of the Japan Energy Economics Institute, are overseeing the logistics transportation process in partnership with: JGC Corporation, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries – Engineering, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, and UBE Industries Corporation.

“It is expected that the use of hydrogen in the global energy system will increase, and this first shipment in the world represents an important opportunity for Aramco to display the potential of hydrocarbons as a reliable source of hydrogen and low carbon ammonia,” said Saudi Aramco’s chief technical officer, Ahmed Al-Khwaiter.

Fahad Al-Shuraihi, Vice President of Energy Efficiency and Carbon Management at SABIC, said: “We can economically benefit from our existing infrastructure for hydrogen and ammonia production through carbon dioxide capture, and our experience in the entire supply chain along with integrated petrochemical facilities will play a role. Important in providing blue ammonia to the world. “

According to the statement, this announcement comes amid growing expectations for the role hydrogen will play in the global energy system. Ammonia, a compound consisting of three atoms of hydrogen and one atom of nitrogen, can contribute to meeting the challenges of rising global energy demand in a reliable, sustainable and affordable way.

The Saudi-Japanese blue ammonia supply network stretches across the entire value chain, including converting hydrocarbons into hydrogen and then into ammonia, while simultaneously capturing associated CO2 emissions.
