Under the MOU, signed on 27 September, the two companies will explore the feasibility and development of renewable energy projects, primarily offshore wind, and will also explore opportunities in the storage, e-mobility, and nuclear sectors, as well as in green hydrogen and its derivatives green ammonia and green methanol.

The MOU between ONGC and NGEL follows a similar agreement ONGC and NGEL’s parent company NTPC signed in 2020.
