Super Basins 6: let's find gas, lots of it!

....encouraging countries to pursue domestic exploration for gas 0

Friday, March 25, 2022, Webinar, Online

There’s lots of compelling reasons for countries to encourage domestic exploration for gas:

There’s less GHG emissions if customers in the country use gas from the country, rather than imported LNG.

The ‘balance of payments’ is better if a country’s money is spent in the country!

Big steps are being made with Carbon Capture & Storage, leading to a time when gas production/power supply is decarbonised, directly or via hydrogen, or indirectly as offsets.

More broadly, regional gas production will support eg Sub-Saharan Africa in lifting hundreds of millions of people out of Energy Poverty.

This webinar will look at basins that offer the potential for new gas discoveries, either as a boost for an existing Super Basin or in the creation of a new one – think of offshore Mauretania and Senegal for example.
