We’re building a better future
Hydrom was launched in 2022 following His Majesty Haitham bin Tarik Al Said's directive to structure and accelerate the development of the green hydrogen sector in Oman. Fully owned by Energy Development Oman (EDO) and regulated by Ministry of Energy and Minerals (MEM), Hydrom is a central and independent entity orchestrating the national interest in green hydrogen. Its main mandate is to master plan the sector, delineating government owned land areas, structuring associated large-scale green hydrogen projects, managing the process for their allocation to developers and overseeing their execution as well as facilitating the development of common infrastructure, connected ecosystem industries and hubs.

The Sultanate of Oman has launched an ambitious green hydrogen program. Green hydrogen and its derivatives constitute a strategic opportunity for the country to ensure its energy security and diversify its economy while supporting the decarbonization efforts of hard-to-abate sectors both in Oman and around the world.
Oman is blessed with very strong renewable resources, positioning it as one of the most attractive locations globally to produce green hydrogen competitively and at large-scale. Oman has, as such, set ambitious green hydrogen production targets, to cover both local demand as well as exports globally.
Besides its favorable natural resources, Oman is an economically and politically stable country, offering an attractive destination for foreign investors with a highly competitive offer. In addition, Oman offers world-class logistics and infrastructure to support the localization of industries.
The Government has already identified the most attractive zones within the country to produce green hydrogen. Those will be offered to investors in subsequent phases of tendering, in line with green hydrogen strategy and production targets.
