Renewable Energy, Carbon Capture, Hydrogen & ESG > Strategies & Measures for Decarbonizing Upstream Oil and Gas – Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)

The most important factor in the current transition of the global energy system is that it is being led by policies and regulations adopted by governments. This is in sharp contrast to previous energy transitions that have been based on inter-fuel competition, where markets determined the most effective strategy. In the case of carbon emissions, the primary concern is to avoid or mitigate global climate change as a consequence of carbon emissions from the use of hydrocarbon fuels.

Energy analysts forecast that global production of oil and natural gas will have to decline annually by 4 to 6 percent in order to meet the global target of Net Zero Emissions by 2050. Oil & gas producing countries face difficult choices in deciding upon the strategy and measures that will best suit their Upstream Oil & Gas Sector.

This Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course will provide participants with an understanding of the strategies and measures for carbon management in the Upstream Oil and Gas Sector. The presentation is given in the context of the 2016 Paris Agreement as implemented by COP26.

By attending this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course, participants will be better equipped to participate in the implementation of measures for the management of carbon emissions in the following areas:

  • Implementation of Measures for Reducing Carbon Emissions
  • Evaluating the Commerciality of Discoveries
  • Establishing Systems for Monitoring and Reporting Carbon Emissions
  • Preparing Field Development Plans
