Southern North Sea ‘well placed’ to meet dual challenge

The southern North Sea (SNS) is well placed to support the transition to a low carbon future while meeting higher energy demand, an industry chief will say at a conference in Norwich today.

Oil and Gas UK chief executive Deirdre Michie will use her speech at SNS 2019 to launch the new Our Vision, Our Future campaign in the region.

The campaign aims to promote Vision 2035, industry’s ambition to meet as much of our country’s oil and gas needs from home produced resources, expand opportunities for the UK supply chain across the energy sector at home and abroad and, through the energy transition, support a lower carbon future.

Ms Michie will say: “Our sector is key to supporting a diverse energy mix which helps us meet the UK’s dual challenge of satisfying ongoing energy demands with a lower carbon footprint.

“We can do this by the oil and gas sector working to reducing its operation emissions as well as supporting the advancement of low carbon and abatement technology.

“Again – SNS is so well placed to support this as here the energy transition is already happening with its gas production – gas to wire project – decommissioning and carbon capture and storage opportunities along with diverse energy sectors like wind where the SNS with its hundreds of wind turbines is leading the way along with wave, tidal and nuclear.

“Indeed –if we are going to deliver the Climate Change Committee net zero target by 2050 – all energies will be needed.

“But how do we ensure we work together in support of the energy transition and industry 4.0 – which must go hand in hand.

“It’s why we launched the Our Vision, Our Future campaign, in which we want to raise awareness and get people engaged and having discussions and getting excited about what the future could and should look like.

“We are asking everyone literally to join a conversation and be part of the journey and outcome by signing up on line and for companies to support us by holding roadshows to encourage discussion and contribution.

“And I’m delighted that EEEGR has given its full support too.”
