PAO NOVATEK and Uniper signed a Memorandum of Understanding to investigate and assess the possibilities of developing a hydrogen value chain. According to the MOU, the Parties will develop an integrated hydrogen production, transportation and supply chain, including hydrogen supplies to Uniper’s power stations in Russia and Western Europe. The MOU considers producing "blue" hydrogen from natural gas combined with carbon capture and storage as well as producing “green” hydrogen from renewable energy sources.
PAO NOVATEK is the largest independent natural gas producer in Russia, and in 2017, entered the global LNG market by successfully launching the Yamal LNG project. Founded in 1994, the Company is engaged in the exploration, production, processing and marketing of natural gas and liquid hydrocarbons. The Company’s upstream activities are concentrated mainly in the prolific Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Region
