The oil and gas industry is under pressure from multiple fronts to improve the greenhouse gas performance of its operations and its product. It needs to prove that the methane emissions from its operations are low (so that gas is a better performing fuel than coal from the environment's perspective), it needs to reduce other CO2 emissions from its operations, and also find ways to reduce the overall CO2 from burning oil and gas. That way companies can keep their performance in 'compliance with Paris', as environmental activist shareholders are demanding.

Not much is happening, but that's because doing anything is pretty hard to do. CO2 emissions from operations are maybe already as low as reasonably practicable, driven down by the intense focus on costs during the low oil price years. Methane emissions are also low, since gas is money, and quantifying leaks (which is different from detecting them) is very hard. Oil companies have the competences to do carbon capture and storage, but the costs are so large it would make their companies uncompetitive if they were to pay the costs of projects while other companies did not have to.

We are looking for speakers who can contribute useful advice, technology, experiences and ideas to this discussion. The business model is for delegates to attend free or inexpensively, but costs covered by service / technology providers speaking at this event.
