Session 1: Panel Session: The Race to Net-Zero Emissions - Dissecting the Regulatory, Social, Environmental and Economic Impacts
Session Chairpersons Adelina Awaluddin, ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc (EMEPMI)

The path to net-zero emissions can only be made possible with a reasonable regulatory and policy framework in place.  It is imperative that governments and industry players work together to achieve a viable and economically competitive environment to achieve the net-zero targets.

Since many governments and corporations announced net-zero goals around the world, policy developments and regulatory frameworks are still lagging to enable industries to progress net-zero emissions initiatives effectively.

This panel session will discuss:

  • Challenges in putting together regulatory and policy frameworks
  • Models for effective partnerships between policymakers and industry
  • Models for incentivising industries to achieve net-zero carbon emissions
  • Carbon tax and carbon credit regime

Panel Speakers:

  • Wan Sayuti Wan Hussin, PETRONAS
  • Roberto F. Aguilera, Curtin University Oil and Gas Innovation Centre
  • Mark Wilkie, Gaffney, Cline & Associates Ltd

Session 2: How Hydrogen Can Play a Role in Net-Zero Emission Goal
Session Chairpersons Alison Hortle, CSIRO Energy; Srikant Kadambi, Microsoft

Hydrogen can play a significant role in the transition toward net-zero energy. The technology to convert methane to hydrogen already exists, and the technology to produce zero-emission hydrogen is rapidly evolving. This session will explore questions around the implementation of a hydrogen industry. It will explore topics around how to generate demand to drive supply; utilisation options around domestic use; import/export opportunities; infrastructure requirements; potential utilisation of existing infrastructure; and a topic that is becoming more and more pressing - the technology requirements around hydrogen storage, including storage materials, subsurface storage, and other emerging technologies. 

Discussion Leaders:

  • CO2-free Hydrogen Strategies, Yoshinari Hiki, ENEOS Corporation
  • Hydrogen: Hype or Hope?, Mathieu Geze, HDF Energy
  • Planning and Optimisation of a Regional Hydrogen Supply Chain: An ASEAN Case Study, Iftekhar A. Karimi, National University of Singapore
  • Going Net-Zero With Hydrogen, Samuel Lee Mohan, Xodus Group

Session 3: Integrating Renewable Energy Development with Current Energy Supply
Session Chairpersons Hirohisa Arai, Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC); Yohei Kawahara, JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration (Malaysia) Limited

With the recent transition toward net-zero emission policies announced by several nations and the supermajors, the role of renewable energy has increasingly become more prominent. Whilst several nations have announced their strategic national energy visions incorporating elevated growth on renewable energies, the oil, gas, and energy industries are also in the transition phase to incorporate renewable energies in their business portfolios..

Recent technological innovations have encouraged numerous energy players to invest in renewable energies. Within a decade, we foresee the increase and development of renewable projects to be further accelerated..

This session will focus on the integration of renewable energies with the current energy supply through cutting-edge technologies, project development strategies, challenges, and strategic action plans.

Discussion Leaders: 

  • Digital Technology’s Role in the Energy Transition, Jim Bullock, Microsoft

  • Low Wind Speed Floating Wind Turbines - Green Electricity for Malaysian O&G Platforms, Izleena M Iqbar, PETRONAS Research Sdn Bhd

14:30 - 15:00
15:00 - 16:30
Session 4: How CCUS Can Support De-carbonisation
Session Chairpersons Pankaj Kumar Tiwari, PETRONAS; Chawarwan Khan, Stratum Reservoir

With increasing drive in the quest for net-zero emissions, industrial processes must be more efficient to meet global climate goals. Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS) promises an amicable solution to emissions reduction and support the path to net-zero emissions. CCUS technologies include capturing CO2 from the source, transporting it by ship or pipeline for utilisation as a resource to produce valuable products, or storing (sequestering) in a deep geological formation..

The session will focus on technologies and approaches that are needed to overcome decarbonisation challenges, while supporting industry sustainability and competitiveness. The discussion topics may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Cost-effective decarbonisation pathways, solutions, and industrial transition
  • Advancement in carbon capture, utilisation, and transport technologies
  • Challenges for CO2 storage in geological formations
  • Carbon abatement, CCUS policies, and economics
  • CCUS hubs as new revenue streams

Discussion Leaders:

  • Strategies for Sustainable Decarbonisation through CCUS - Case Study of Shell Quest Project, Olutayo Ajimoko, Rhetort Ltd

  • The CO2 Storage Resource Catalogue: Commercial Readiness of CO2 Storage Resources in the Asia-Pacific Region, Christopher Consoli, Global CCS Institute

  • Integrated CCUS-H2 Hubs: Barriers and Benefits, Allison Hortle, CSIRO Energy

  • Net Zero Pathways, the case for CCS Networks and Hubs – An ExxonMobil Perspective, Stephen Jones, ExxonMobil

  • Challenges and Advancement in Offshore Carbon Capture Technologies, Fadhli Hadana Rahman, PETRONAS Research Sdn Bhd

Session 5: GHG Emissions Reduction and Management
Session Chairpersons Riddhi Tody, Microsoft; Siti Fatimah Abdul Aziz, Schlumberger

Climate change presents an unprecedented challenge to our world today. The number of net-zero commitments from governments and businesses has grown exponentially over the last couple of years. Many E&P companies have aggressive net-zero commitments/goals and are piecing together their sustainability strategy given their long-term sustainability goals. While carbon offsetting is recognised as a short-term necessity, it is widely agreed that emissions management is essential to combat climate change long-term. However, measuring and tracking carbon emissions is complicated. Historically, carbon tracking has been handled manually, often with data of insufficient quality. The challenge is exacerbated by the lack of standardised reporting metrics..

This session will focus on how operations and technology can be brought together to take on GHG emissions management in the E&P industry. We will explore:

  • Data management for carbon accounting at scale
  • Tracking, monitoring, and reducing Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions
  • Reducing GHG emissions from core E&P operations

Discussion Leaders:

  • Real Time Intelligent Carbon Monitoring System to help Organisations Transparently Accelerate Decarbonisation, Victor Nian, Envision Digital International Pte Ltd

  • Common Goals – GHG Targets and Measurements for Suppliers and Producers, Nathan Frisbee, Schlumberger

  • Policy and Program of Addressing Climate Change as Part of Sustainability in Pertamina, Suripno Suripno, PT Pertamina Persero

14:30 - 15:00
15:00 - 16:30
Session 6: Advancement in Technologies to Support Net Zero Emissions
Session Chairpersons Amr Hassan, Aecometric Corporation; Mohd Fadzil Harun, Halliburton

How do we accelerate the industry to achieve net-zero? What innovative tools and solutions have the real potential to scale up efforts in reaching net-zero to limit the effects of climate change? And what does this mean for the energy business? Throughout this session, we will be exploring some of the more significant questions our industry is currently facing, including sharing of insights and perspectives. 

Discussion Leaders:

  • Reducing Carbon Footprint in Oil and Gas Operations, Frederik Majkut, Schlumberger

  • CO2 Storage Technology Applications for Achieving Net Zero Targets, Irfan Sami, Halliburton

  • The Path to Net Zero Emissions – Reducing Carbon Footprint with Specialised Coatings for Production Tubing, Maxim Kabanov, Majorpack Inc
