Lunch'n Think Webinar: Optimum Developments Offshore our Brave New World, developments must be both low cost and low carbon! 0

Friday, May 7, 2021, Webinar, Online

Any future oil & gas development, anywhere in the world and whether offshore or onshore, faces the twin challenges of:


Gas discoveries offshore Southern Africa are not excused from this expectation!

Technology supplies the means to achieve these two seemingly contradictory objectives.

For example, offshore developments themselves need to have embraced Remote Operations, Electrification (eliminating CO2), and elimination of ‘cold venting’ and ‘fugitive’ emissions. Use of the gas onshore for Gas-to-Power needs to embrace Carbon Capture & Storage.
In this Webinar Future Energy Partners will outline describe such cost-leading ‘decarbonising’ developments.
