Includes the IEA’s report: ‘Oil and Gas Industry in Energy Transitions”.
Oil and gas companies are facing a critical challenge as the world increasingly shifts towards clean energy transitions. Fossil fuels drive the companies’ near-term returns, but failure to address growing calls to reduce greenhouse gas emissions could threaten their long-term social acceptability and profitability.
Biogas, biomethane and other renewable gases will play a key role in helping Europe’s transition to a clean energy system with a genuinely resource-efficient and circular economy. Renewable gases will enable carbon-neutral (or even carbon-negative) Europe with zero pollution by 2050.
Hot topics for European Gas Conference 2020 will include:
- Adapting to the outcome of Gazprom-Naftogaz transit negotiations
- Increasing number of projects reaching FID and LNG supply arriving to Europe
- LNG trading in a commoditised market
- Putting gas on the map post-Madrid Forum: Bridging relationships between the industry and European Commission
- Gas in the energy transition: Implementing new technologies to increase Hydrogen production
- New models for structuring and financing gas projects
The summary of the hearing is now available.
Europe’s first shore-to-ship Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) bunker station for inland shipping was inaugurated on 31 October 2019 at the Niehler Hafen in Cologne (Germany). The opening of this station represents a concrete step towards facilitating clean fluvial transport as it will allow ships and barges to refuel with LNG.
