A workshop run by CCU International’s Beena Sharma at the Future North Sea 2023 conference last week included 30 delegates from the energy sector and focused on CCUS, the challenges and how we overcome these.
Joined by Ildiko Kiss from SLB and Iain Martin, CCUS Theme Lead from the Net Zero Technology Centre, they tackled specific questions with a focus on discussing potential solutions to the challenges CCUS brings and how we can come together to work on those solutions.
Beena explains the key takeaways from the room:
“The attendees overall concluded that the industry could do more to drive policy through lobbying, but education would be more impactful. They also concluded that there is a need for technology advancement at speed but with collaboration in mind and not competition within the industry”.
“And finally, the group concluded that both CCS and CCU have a role to play in decarbonising production and achieving net zero by 2045 and beyond.”
