The Decarbonisation Conference, taking place in the Decarbonisation Theatre is a new and engaging programme gathering global experts to share their insights into the most innovative strategies and technologies centered on 4 pivotal themes for the industry: Methane, Hydrogen, Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS), and New Energies.
The Decarbonisation Conference will feature a series of interviews and technical presentations from leading industry innovators and solution providers.
The conference will facilitate sessions aimed at providing the latest innovations that will enable all stakeholders to address the growing demand for green solutions, attract strategic partnerships and cross-industry participation, generate funding mechanisms, and convert innovative ideas into a practical solution towards leading a cleaner energy future.
KEY THEMES TO BE DISCUSSED AT THE DECARBONISATION CONFERENCE
Addressing the methane challenge
Is eliminating methane emissions from the upstream oil and gas industry the best short-term opportunity for contributing to climate change mitigation?
Reducing methane emissions from oil and gas operations is one of the most impactful actions that companies can do to achieve net-zero targets. Developing policies and introducing new regulations often requires frameworks and processes to be adapted to work with local circumstances. The existing experiences of jurisdictions and businesses that have already gone through this process is something that other countries and organisations can learn from to make their process easier. For increased efficiency with more regulatory interventions, improving measurement and emissions data reporting are key factors in any new policy.
Hydrogen: seizing momentum to achieve a clean energy future
Is hydrogen the solution for a greener future?
Hydrogen plays a vital role in the journey towards net-zero by helping to decarbonise hard to-abate sectors, diversify energy sources worldwide, and foster business and technological innovation as drivers for a new age of long-term economic growth. Providing the most low-cost decarbonisation solution for more than 20% of final energy demand by 2050, contributing to a cumulated reduction of 80 gigatonnes of CO2.
Unlocking the full potential of CCUS: a key driver of low-cost decarbonisation
Will the coming decade realise the significant potential of CCUS to contribute to the achievement of net-zero emissions?
Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is envisioned as a key enabler in decarbonising global industries and is set to rapidly transform the energy sector. While deploying CCUS at scale remains a challenge, the industry is making progress on new technology solutions. New cross-sector partnerships are positioning the energy sector to expand operations. Investments aimed at reducing risk and developing reliable supply chains will be the next step in scaling up CCUS projects, requiring both collaboration and new commercial partnerships between technology experts, strategic developers and the public sector.
Exploring new energies: a gateway to the future of sustainable resources
Is the oil and gas sector investing enough in other sources of fuel and new technologies to succeed in their decarbonisation efforts?
The need to accelerate the transition to new sources of energy has become ever more acute as nations seek solutions to the energy trilemma of energy security, affordability and sustainability. Many stakeholders are calling for the accelerated focus on investment into energy efficiency measures and an unprecedented build-up of low carbon energy solutions covering new energy sources. The extreme price and supply volatility playing out globally in the oil and gas markets, however, will potentially lead to both energy demand destruction and demand substitution. For energy security to be linked with energy supply now mandates utilising all energy sources across the spectrum of hydrocarbons, nuclear, renewables, energy efficiency.
