The Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and clean energy company Masdar announced Sunday that they will collaborate to develop commercial-scale carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) projects in the Middle East. Although some smaller carbon capture facilities already exist in the region, the recent agreement represents the largest attempt to date. Together, the two entities awarded an engineering, procurement and construction contract worth over over $122 million to Dodsal Group to build the groundbreaking facility. Masdar officials claim the captured C02 will be used to increase efficiency of the country’s oil extraction operations while reducing emissions.
