The Jordanian Minister of Planning and International Cooperation, Nasser Shraideh, met with representatives from Fortescue Metals Group this week to discuss hydrogen investment opportunities in the Kingdom.
In a statement, Shraideh said the investment discussions focused on green hydrogen production and ammonia, with the aim of exporting to international markets.
This would help both Fortescue Metals and the Jordanian government explore the lucrative international hydrogen market.
This is part of Jordan’s ambitions to decarbonise the country with the use of clean energy in addition to seeking investment opportunities to scale up hydrogen projects.
The Australian ambassador to Jordan also attended the meeting.
