Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) plays a critical role in the oil and gas industry as companies work towards reducing carbon dioxide emissions while meeting global energy demands.
CCUS technologies involve the capturing of CO2 from fuel combustion or industrial processes, transportation from capturing to injection sites, and injection into suitable underground geological formation. CCUS aims to support the environmental sustainability strategy.
This workshop brought together leading global CCUS and CO2 EOR players, including oil and gas companies, government/regulatory authorities, R&D institutes, and service providers. Renowned keynote speakers shared their views on technology and project development.

It has a positive impact on managing climate changes as part of clean energy initiatives by embracing technology throughout the whole business value chain, whether upstream, midstream, or downstream.
Within upstream, CO2 for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is a proven recovery mechanism and has seen worldwide applications with more than 100 projects in the last few decades. Continued CO2 EOR deployment can help to maximise oil recovery and reduce carbon emissions.
"The workshop provides an excellent platform to share and discuss key emerging trends, opportunities, and technology advancements in global CCUS initiatives, with worldwide stakeholders and industry professionals from government authorities; regulators; academic institutions; oil and gas upstream and downstream sectors; leading engineering, consulting, and service providers."
