2020 will be remembered as the year the Covid 19 pandemic changed the world. But there was also a conspicuous growing momentum behind the campaign to address the longer-term global challenge of climate change. More and more countries made pledges to achieve "net zero" emissions.
The entire oil and gas industry is undergoing a unique transformation. The industry has already set ambitious emissions-related targets to maintain its operating authority during and after the transition to a climate-neutral energy system. Unlike previous industry disruptions, however, "decarbonization" will bring entirely new rules, challenges, and opportunities.
Companies that act now will not only lead the way to climate neutrality by 2050 - they will also reposition themselves for potential commercial success for the years beyond.
The 4th Virtual Pipeline Summit (VPS) on "Decarbonization of the Pipeline Industry" on 1 July 2021 will shed light on the challenges and opportunities that decarbonization will bring to the industry covering topics like hydrogen, power-to-liquids, biofuels, electrification, methane emission reduction and carbon capture & storage.
Already confirmed speakers include IRENA, IEA, GASCADE/AquaDuctus, BP, STREICHER Group, Siemens, The Sniffers/Intero.
Featuring an online platform that simulates many elements of a real conference, the VPS online event series is a unique meeting place for knowledge transfer and networking with pipeline professionals from around the world. More than 25% of the participants are coming from pipeline operators.
