Measures to decarbonise offshore oil & gas and onshore industrial clusters
In the continuation of efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of the energy industry, the conference will address challenges and solutions to reduce emissions intensity in the production of offshore oil and gas by means of emissions reductions measures including electrification & offshore wind, as well as decarbonisation of UK onshore industrial clusters with solutions such as hydrogen and CCUS.
In the deployment of offshore wind, the UK government and industry are well coordinated, and the British industrial base is growing steadily. Norwegian offshore wind industry has supported the development of the UK industry since its inception, and recently the Norwegian government has also announced a plan to license 30 GW to 2040 in Norwegian waters.
The offshore wind sessions will therefore address increased opportunities for collaboration in many segments of the industry – securing energy and reducing carbon emissions while simultaneously creating a sustainable industry in both countries.
