August 19 (Renewables Now) - Norwegian energy group Equinor ASA (NYSE:EQNR) is keen on collaborating with state-owned Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, trading as PetroVietnam, on clean energy projects and offshore wind in particular.
Representatives of the two parties, including Equinor’s country representative for Vietnam, Anita H. Holgersen, and PetroVietnam’s general director Le Manh Hung, met on Thursday and discussed the similarities between the companies, according to local media.
Holgersen has expressed hope that the pair will cooperate not only in offshore wind farm development and construction but also in hydrogen and ammonia production, as well as in carbon capture and storage (CCS), PetroTimes reported.
In turn, PetroVietnam’s head envisages cooperation with Vietnam’s government and local industry to prepare a roadmap for the implementation of offshore wind projects.
