Riyadh – Mubasher: Air Liquide Arabia (ALAR) on Tuesday began pumping hydrogen through its $400 million pipeline network in Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea city of Yanbu, according to Reuters.
The company announced that it will supply a Saudi Aramco refinery, supporting the kingdom’s endeavour to shift towards cleaner fuel.
The Saudi Aramco Mobil Refinery (SAMREF), a joint venture between Aramco and ExxonMobil, will be the first company to use the Yanbu hydrogen grid, ALAR’s general manager Francois-Xavier Haulle said.
ALAR is set to provide hydrogen to three other clients in 2020, Haulle revealed.
It is worth mentioning that Saudi Arabia pledged to reduce emissions by up to 130 million tonnes a year by 2030.
