BP, Masdar to Explore Green Hydrogen Development in Egypt

The newly formed consortium has signed a Framework Agreement (FWA) with the Egyptian government to start carrying out a set of studies and activities to evaluate the technical and commercial feasibility of the project.

bp has announced that it has entered into a Joint Development Agreement to join Masdar, Hassan Allam Utilities and Infinity Power to explore the potential development of a multi-phase green hydrogen (gH2) project in Egypt.

Under the JDA, bp will act as the lead developer and operator of the project on behalf of the consortium.

Our combined local and global expertise will create economic opportunities and contribute to a cleaner and greener future for Egypt and help to decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors globally relying on fossil fuels.

Mohamed Ismail Mansour, Chairman of Infinity Power held that bringing another partner on board highlights the ambition of our consortium and their commitment to collaborating and innovating to bring about new green investment in Africa.
