PLENARY PANEL DISCUSSION. NAVIGATING ENERGY TRANSITION IN TIMES OF TURMOIL
The double shock from the COVID-19 and the oil price plunge has once again thrown the oil and gas sector into turmoil. In response, many O&G players have reaffirmed their commitment to the net-zero path despite the crisis. What are the long-term effects of the pandemic and associated demand slump on O&G companies’ strategies?
  • Low oil price, post pandemic and structural demand shifts: what it means for the viability of clean energy transition and existing carbon commitments
  • Possible energy transition pathways for the independent oil & gas firms
  • US pure play versus European green diversification: who wins?
  • Demystifying ‘net zero’: how to align climate ambitions with the Paris agreement

THE ANATOMY OF NET ZERO TARGETS: MAJOR LOW-CARBON PROJECTS AND INITIATIVES IN THE O&G AND BEYOND
Net zero is today’s go-to buzzword for ambitious declarations on climate change action. But what do ‘net zero’ or ‘carbon neutral’ actually mean in practice? What are some of the most ambitious low-carbon projects already announced in the industry? Which of them are realistic in practice, both technically and financially?

INNOVATING TOWARDS NET ZERO
Without a major acceleration in clean energy innovation and low-carbon tech, net-zero emissions targets will not be achievable. What’s more, no one company can solve the energy challenge alone, not even the giants of the industry. What are the key technologies the energy sector needs to reach net-zero emissions?
  • Technology innovation to accelerate energy transitions. How do we use technology to transform the oil & gas to a low-carbon-intensity industry?
  • Digitalisation and the future of energy: digital technology as the vehicle for energy transition

THE FUTURE IS NOW: CASE STUDIES ON DECARBONISING OIL & GAS OPERATIONS
As oil and gas companies face the difficult near-term market environment, they confront a longer-term challenge: growing pressure from regulators, investors, and others to decarbonize their operations. What are some of the examples of how oil & gas can shrink the carbon footprint, reveal new avenues for revenue growth, and limit the negative impact on the business as stakeholder demands and expectations continue to rise?

THE BIG “IF” OF THE DECARBONISATION STORY: CARBON REMOVAL
Carbon removal is expected to play a key role in the transition to a net-zero energy system. CCUS, direct air capture and nature-based solutions have all made headlines in recent months. Yet many still see negative emissions tech as the advertising of false solutions that only maintain the status quo in the fossil fuels industry. What will it take for carbon removal to deliver on its promise?
  • A new spin on an old story: everything that is wrong with carbon capture (and what we can do about it)
  • Case study: Will industrial CCUS hubs and clusters work?
  • Separating the wheat from the chaff: what should you look for in any nature-based solution?
  • Carbontech and O&G: what will it take for “direct-air-capture” ventures to take off?

HYDROGEN: THE NEW HOLY GRAIL. OR NOT?
The production and use of low-carbon forms of hydrogen had gained unprecedented momentum before the Covid‑19 crisis. It is essential to ensure that hydrogen technology momentum is sustained. Yet there is a reason why hydrogen accounts for just 4 percent of final energy use today: it is cumbersome and expensive. This does not discourage many companies in the O&G from looking into hydrogen as a cleaner energy source. What will it take to make hydrogen viable?
  • Path to hydrogen competitiveness. What are the characteristics of investable hydrogen projects?
  • Options for producing low-carbon hydrogen at scale: how to address investment risks of first-movers?
  • Blue hydrogen and CCS: a smart combination?
  • Case study: the world’s largest hydrogen electrolyser in Germany. Technical, economic & environmental benefits of the technology
