SPE Gaia / OGCI / IPIECA / IOGP Climate Series eSessions – Methane | #2 | Technology and Investment Focus

The private sector has a considerable role to play in supporting the development, testing & deployment of methane detection, measurement and mitigation technologies. In the third webinar of the SPE Climate Series, join us to review incumbent and emerging technologies to reduce methane emissions. The session will start with an overview of technologies available to the industry, and will then be followed by practical examples of solutions offered by service providers in the space. From the financial perspective, OGCI Climate Investments will present its recently announced 2020 call for investments for projects reducing methane emissions. The session will conclude in a panel discussion on the role of the private sector to support such technologies, as well as barriers and opportunities for rapid mitigation action. We are now planning a separate session on satellites, so we will move the opportunity for GHGsat, Kayrros and others to speak to that event.

Duration: 1.5 Hours

This series of webinars between thought leaders on climate change in the O&G industry and the broader O&G industry around the world will be undertaken in an effort to deepen understanding around issues of climate change and receive feedback from the wider oil and gas industry on the energy transition. A series of virtual dialogues will be held over 2020 with global scope, to discuss sustainability around key topics such as CCUS, reducing methane emissions, collaborative action, etc.
