Keppel and ExxonMobil to explore low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia solutions in Singapore

Keppel Infrastructure and ExxonMobil Asia Pacific are looking to develop access to low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia for commercial and industrial applications in Singapore.

Under the Singaporean Government’s National Hydrogen Strategy, released in October 2022, the Energy Market Authority and Maritime and Port Authority issued an expression of interest in December for proposals to build, own and operate low- or zero-carbon power generation and bunkering facilities on Jurong Island.

Keppel has already been making significant hydrogen investments in the Asian country.
