Abu Dhabi taps Asian ties for hydrogen push

Flurry of agreements lays foundation for expanding historic energy collaboration in the fledgling market

A trio of pacts last month between state-owned Adnoc and Asia’s leading energy consumers to cooperate in the development of the fast-growing hydrogen industry illustrated the speed with which even the world’s leading oil parastatals are being forced to bend to international decarbonisation pressures. Deals were struck in quick succession with South Korea, Malaysia and India—as the Emirati behemoth scrambles to lock in a dominant role in the changing energy landscape. And in early April, the UAE’s federal authorities signed an accord with Japan, which is emerging as the regional pioneer in hydrogen use, to collaborate on the development of an international supply chain for the fuel.
