07T Decarbonisation II

04 Sep 2019, 14:30 - 16:30

Room 3

The energy transition towards a low carbon future is underway and these sessions will describe some interesting developments in the oil and gas industry in response to the transition. The sessions will consider the increasing focus on oil and gas industry emissions management in the UK, how future energy mix scenarios may affect the offshore industry and an approach to identifying the next generation of technology opportunities to position the industry in the low carbon economy. The importance of carbon capture and storage to the industry will be discussed along with an update on the only large-scale carbon capture project currently under evaluation in Scotland, the ACORN project and a case study describing the integration of a gas to wire system with carbon capture and storage at an offshore gas field in the Netherlands. Unique energy storage solutions will be considered using an example in the North Sea that is the world’s first drilling rig to operate a low-emission hybrid power plant. A project to evaluate the potential opportunity to re-use existing offshore infrastructure for the production and supply hydrogen as an alternative low carbon fuel will also be described.
