Some of the North Sea’s biggest players will set out their plans for moving to a low carbon future at an industry event.
Hosted by Decom North Sea, the showcase has been billed as the “first upfront view on supply chain opportunities within the energy transition”.
‘Energy Transition for the Supply Chain’ will take place at The Chester in Aberdeen on March 23, in partnership with the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA).
Among those taking part are oil giants Shell and BP.
DNS interim chief executive Sam Long said: “With so much rhetoric surrounding the future of the energy sector, it can be easy to assume that the operational fundamentals are universally understood; for example, the difference between blue and green hydrogen, or how repurposing differs from re-use. We know that this is not the case, and our agenda is set to bring clarity on these subjects and many more.”
Also on the agenda is low carbon technology firm Storegga, the driver behind the Acorn carbon capture and storage (CCS) project.
BP will also discuss its Northern Endurance Partnership and discuss how blue and green hydrogen will held to decarbonise north-east England.
Bill Cattanach, head of supply chain at the OGA, added: “Developing a sustainable and competitive supply chain capable of delivering UKCS energy transition projects – including CCS, hydrogen and offshore wind – is a key objective for the OGA.
“We are increasingly using our Energy Pathfinder portal to bring these activities to service companies’ attention, giving them more confidence to invest in the required skills and solutions, and we look forward to talking about this and other ways we’re supporting the supply chain at Energy Transition for the Supply Chain later this month.”
The event, which is close to sell-out, provides delegates with three networking sessions and the chance to visit an exclusive exhibition.
