Petroliam Nasional Bhd via its subsidiary Petronas Gas and New Energy Sdn Bhd (PGNESB) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Eneos Corp (Eneos) to develop a competitive, clean hydrogen supply chain between Malaysia and Japan jointly, and to explore other hydrogen opportunities.

Petronas Gas and New Energy executive VP and CEO Adnan Zainal Abidin said the group is proud to expand its three-decade long energy partnership with Eneos to include hydrogen.

“This is on top of what we have established in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) space.

“More importantly, this partnership is a testament of how industry collaboration can help accelerate our shared aspiration towards a low carbon future,” he said in a statement.
