German energy company Uniper is in talks with more Middle East hydrogen producers to acquire supply for the European market. This is part of Uniper’s plan to supply customers with decarbonized hydrogen and to turn its European operations carbon neutral by 2035, company officials said. They want to use their natural gas, LNG shipping, and storage network in Europe to support its hydrogen ambitions. In July they held negotiations with Oman for an exclusive offtake agreement for green ammonia. Germany has a subsidy mechanism that could benefit Middle East sales if offering prices are competitive with other suppliers such as Australia and Chile.
