OCI Global signs hydrogen offtake deal with New Fortress Energy; expands green ammonia production in Texas


Ammonia and methanol producer OCI Global has signed a hydrogen offtake deal with New Fortress Energy in a move that will scale-up its green ammonia production capacity to approximately 160,000 tonnes per year in Beaumont, Texas.

Under terms of the agreement, New Fortress Energy will supply OCI for its ZeroParks site that will produce green hydrogen using proton exchange membrane (PEM) technology. The hydrogen will then be delivered to OCI’s facilities in Beaumont, Texas, where it will then be converted to green ammonia.

ZeroParks is New Fortress Energy’s first green hydrogen production project and will come online in two phases. The first phase in 2025 will allow OCI to produce around 80,000 tonnes of green ammonia a year. The second phase, scheduled for 2026, will then double OCI’s production capacity to 160,000 tonnes per year.

Nassef Sawiris, Executive Chair of OCI Global, described the announcement as another milestone in the company’s decarbonisation journey. He further noted ammonia and methanol as logical hydrogen carriers.
