bp signs MoU with Mauritania to explore large-scale production of green hydrogen

bp has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Mauritania to explore the potential for large-scale production of green hydrogen in the renewables-focused country.

In a statement, bp said the agreement built on “existing strong relationships” and could be an important step towards the development of significant green hydrogen production in Mauritania.

bp will initially carry out a data collection campaign with studies assessing the suitability of the wind and solar resources in selected locations for large-scale renewable power generation and green hydrogen production.

The MoU was signed in a meeting alongside COP27, by the President of Mauritania, HE Mohamed Ould Cheikh El Ghazouani, HE Abdessalam Ould Mohamed Saleh, Minister of Petroleum, Mines and Energy for the Government of Mauritania, bp’s chief executive Bernard Looney, bp’s executive vice president of gas and low carbon energy, Anja-Isabel Dotzenrath, bp’s executive vice president of production and operations Gordon Birrell and bp’s senior vice president for Mauritania and Senegal Emil Ismayilov.
