Al Abdali said that the company has started testing the network for its readiness to transport hydrogen

Oman will repurpose its gas pipeline system to transport green hydrogen, the Oman Daily Observer reported, citing OQ Gas Networks managing director Mansoor Ali Al Abdali.

The aim is to quickly tap the significant business and growth opportunities when green hydrogen projects materialise in the Gulf state.

OQ Gas Networks, the monopoly operator of the country’s 4,000-kilometre-long gas pipeline system, is expected to be at the forefront of supplying blue or green hydrogen to customers.

Al Abdali said that the company has started testing the network for its readiness to transport hydrogen.

Earlier this month, UK-based energy services provider Petrofac signed a memorandum of understanding with Oman Hydrogen Centre to collaborate in developing capabilities for Oman’s renewable energy sector.
