Petrofac has said that the green ammonia produced at this new facility will primarily be used for export supporting the global hydrogen community and decarbonisation goals.

The exports will be achieved through a facility based at Ain Sokhna Port on the Gulf of Suez, providing a corridor for international exportation of ammonia.

The project is said to currently be in the early stage with Petrofac currently assessing the feasibility of the facility.

Alex Haynes, Head of Business Development, New Energy Services at Petrofac, said, “We’re delighted to be supporting Mediterranean Energy Partners with its strategic green energy project.

“This award builds on our growing track record in the new energy space and recent green hydrogen projects in Australia, the UK, and other global locations.

“Egypt is moving fast to develop its natural advantages for green energy with its abundant solar and wind resources, coupled with its strategic geographic location for exporting zero carbon products, and Petrofac is thrilled to be supporting this growth.”
