Oracle Power PLC (AIM:ORCP), the international natural resources project developer, is pleased to share a short Information Memorandum in relation to the Company’s proposed green hydrogen project in Pakistan.
The Information Memorandum provides an overview of the project, including proposed capacity, specifications of the facility, targeted market, expected costs, pricing goals and a development update. Energy from green hydrogen production is internationally regarded as a key potential fuel for a carbon neutral future and hydrogen production projects are increasingly being adopted internationally. Oracle is well positioned and plans to be the first to set up a hydrogen production facility in Pakistan, a targeting a globally competitive cost of approximately US$2 per kg of Hydrogen.
Oracle is confident that the planned facility would produce green hydrogen at a relatively low price given the decreasing cost of renewable power and the comparative advantage of low cost production in Pakistan. The project aims to bring the cost of green hydrogen below US$2 per kg once operational at full capacity.
Dr Naveed Akhtar, Chief of Technology – Hydrogen, commented: “It is encouraging to see the potential for Oracle’s Green Hydrogen Facility and I see that there is real possibility of producing green hydrogen at competitive prices for the market in China, South Asia and Europe.”
Naheed Memon, CEO of Oracle, commented: “We are making good progress in a short time since signing the Co-Operation Agreement with PowerChina. Green hydrogen has been dubbed as the ‘fuel of the future’ and Oracle is in the exciting position to be a first mover in Pakistan and, at the competitive price that is being targeted, is set to be in a strong position in the international market as well.”
