F02 - Innovations for Cleaner Production

The upstream sector is continuing to apply new technologies to achieve continuous improvement in minimising the environmental impact of its operations including those aimed at: reducing GHG and other emissions; reducing freshwater use; recycling and/or safe disposal of produced water; reducing spills; utilisation of waste heat; electrification; limiting operational footprints; and facilitating safe and timely abandonment of wells and facilities and reclaiming sites at the end of their useful life. This forum will showcase new technologies and other innovations being applied in both conventional and unconventional oil and gas operations to achieve cleaner production of oil and gas resources and lower environmental impact.
