Why Carbon Capture Is Essential For UK Oil And Gas

Trade body Oil and Gas UK’s (OGUK) new Energy Transition Outlook report, published today, finds that the development of carbon capture use, and storage technology (CCUS) is essential to meeting the sector’s obligations.

The paper calls for “urgent action” in the form of government funding to support five key industrial CCUS projects by the end of the fourth quarter next year.

If the five projects are realized, the development would allow for up to 30m tonnes of carbon to be captured.

In addition, the paper calls for joint action to increase the potential for low carbon hydrogen to be used as a fuel to heat homes and power cars.

OGUK also warned that government energy policy should continue to take into account the oil and gas sector’s contribution to the UK’s economy.

Instead of pursuing policies that would impair the UK’s production capacity and lead to imports, the focus should instead be applied to how oil and gas can be used in a low-carbon environment.

The sector is one of the UK’s first to present a plan regarding how it can reach net-zero, arguing that its expertise is required if the rest of the UK’s economy is to decarbonize. Related: OPEC’s Number Two Suggests Deeper Oil Output Cuts

Chief executive Deirdre Michie said: “The oil and gas sector will have to earn its position in this new energy world, cutting its own emissions and working with governments and regulators to progress the five CCUS projects which now need to move forward into the next phase and developing hydrogen.

“As our report shows, there is lots of work to be done in a huge market which is only getting bigger as global demand for energy continues to grow”

“The Climate Change Committee report published at the beginning of this year noted CCUS was critical to our net-zero ambitions. Our challenge, working with others including the OGTC’s Net Zero Solutions Centre, is to realize CCUS and other low carbon technologies as an opportunity for British businesses.”

    The Oil and Gas industry shouldn't have to "earn its place" rather that it should lead others in the industry of environment in these types of changes to better further its future. Great article.
