Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu and Air Products Qudra signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish world-class industrial gas production facilities and distribution networks in the industrial cities of Royal Commission.

The MoU sets preliminary framework details for Air Products Qudra to establish a hydrogen fuelling economy in the kingdom, achieve higher values for off-gases, introduce new technologies to convert low-value feedstocks into high-value products, establish a helium recovery network, and expand the carbon-dioxide capture and re-use economy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The MoU supports Royal Commission’s strategy to promote direct investments, diversify and enhance the kingdom’s economy, improve the services to its clients to help improve their business performance, and maximise localisation within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Seifi Ghasemi, chairman, president and CEO of Air Products, said: “It is an honour to collaborate with the Royal Commission to explore the business case to invest, build, own and operate world-scale, transformative industrial gas facilities at Jubail and further support the creation of a world-leading downstream sector in Saudi Arabia.

Mohammad A Abunayyan, chairman of Vision Invest & Qudra Energy, said: “We are pleased about the collaboration with the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu as Air Products Qudra strives to deliver world-class industrial gas infrastructure to Jubail and Yanbu.”
