Carbon Management in Oil and Gas Industry

Posted on January 13, 2011 by

More than 60% of greenhouse gases emitted worldwide is a result of energy production and use. This is one of the biggest challenges facing the oil and gas industry today – to meet the growing demand for secure and affordable energy while reducing CO2 emissions. Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) is one of the most promising CO2-reduction technologies available to the oil and gas industry.

Some of the key considerations for implementing CCS include:

  • Which CO2 capture technology fits you best
  • Cost-effective transportation methods
  • Geological storage options
  • Managing public perception
  • Navigating legal issues across borders

Successful CCS and CO2-EOR projects will require strong participation from everyone in the oil and gas industry, including policy-makers.
