In January 2008, Masdar and Hydrogen Energy, a joint venture between BP Alternative Energy and Rio Tinto, signed an agreement to work together on the front-end engineering design of an industrial-scale hydrogen-fired power generation project in Abu Dhabi. The plants CO2 will be captured and transported for storage. The plant would be located in Abu Dhabi.
Natural gas will be processed to create hydrogen and CO2. The hydrogen fuel would generate low-carbon electricity. Rather than being emitted to the atmosphere, the CO2 will be captured, ready for transportation and injection into a producing oil field where it can replace natural gas currently being injected into the field to maintain pressure. The injected CO2 has also the potential to increase the proportion of Abu Dhabis oil that can be recovered.
