Technical Forum 4 - Carbon Capture and Storage

20 Sep 2023
Auditorium 4
F04 - Carbon Capture & Storage

As the petroleum industry works to reduce GHG emissions to net-zero, one key tool at their disposal is Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS). Capturing emissions can be done at their source, such as at large industrial facilities, or by removing CO2 emissions directly from the atmosphere through Direct Air Capture (DAC), or through Nature Based Solutions. Once GHG’s such as CO2 are captured, they can be stored underground or utilised for other purposes. This forum will examine the current state of the CCUS industry, what is required for it to grow, and the nascent technologies that will deliver the large-scale growth of CCUS required to address global emissions.
