TechnipFMC will lead a consortium made up of some of the biggest names in renewables to construct and test its new offshore green hydrogen production system.
With the dramatic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the fluctuating price of oil, 2020 has been a difficult year for us all and particularly our industry. During this time, we experienced a period of dramatic change, leading to a very “different” future.
As we endure these challenging times, the climate emergency persists, and the planet continues to be threatened. Without a strong and stable economy, the funds to invest in a greener, cleaner future simply won’t be there. Even with the fall in carbon emissions, our modelling shows that the pandemic will only reduce demand through to 2050 by 8%.1
The Energy Industries Council (EIC) has announced the winners of the 2020 EIC Awards, with 13 companies sharing the top prizes in 12 categories, and one lucky Rising Star winning a scholarship worth £18,500 at the Robert Gordon University (RGU).
Certification body DNV GL has awarded SuperNode with a statement of feasibility for its subsea superconducting cable system.
Political leaders are making strides in climate change this month with election commitments from President-elect Biden in the US, UK Prime Minister Johnson launching a 10-point plan for a Green Industrial Revolution and the European Union unveiling plans to increase offshore windfarm capacity 25-fold as part of the Green Deal, but more action is required to get in striking distance of the Paris Agreement, according to DNV GL.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s 10-point plan put hydrogen at number two on the list, but panellists at session four of Energy Voice’s ETIDEX event wanted more clarity.
The finalists for the 2020 EIC Awards have been announced, with 39 companies competing for 11 categories at the prestigious energy supply chain awards ceremony, taking place on Thursday 3rd December.
DNV GL launches industry-first recommended practice on quality assurance of oil and gas industry’s digital twins
DNV GL has published the oil and gas industry’s first recommended practice (RP) on how to build and quality-assure digital twins.
Leading voices from the world of industry will get to grips with the energy transition’s biggest questions at a free online event in one week’s time.
A boss at DNV GL says the company’s latest Energy Transition Outlook shows how the energy system has been changed by the pandemic.
Hydrogen will play a key role in our transition to clean energy over the coming decades as it takes a priority position in the oil and gas industry’s decarbonisation efforts. In 2020, we have seen slower industry activity and a reduced oil price, but net-zero carbon targets and broad societal support for them remain.
Independent energy consultancy and certification body DNV GL has given its seal of approval to an “innovative” double rotor floating wind turbine concept.
Energy efficiency measures in buildings and industrial facilities are a key driver to accelerate the energy transition, but more investment and innovation is needed to speed up the pace of change.
A pilot project to remotely perform inspections on three of offshore cranes on the Norwegian Continental Shelf is ongoing.
The Aoka Mizu FPSO has been picked to trial a new digital twin project to predict and analyse hull fatigue.
It is the hottest topic of all time for the energy industry. The energy transition that began more than 25 years ago is now central in the battle to curb and reverse runaway climate change within 30 years.
Texo Group’s sister company Texo DSI has successfully pioneered a new unmanned inspection method on a major UK North Sea FPSO, delivering significant safety, time and cost saving benefits.
World leaders were due to convene in Glasgow for the UN Climate Conference (COP26) in November for what was anticipated to be a transformational moment in the energy transition.
Governments are on course to miss the Paris Agreement with deep decarbonisation of the world’s energy system still 15 years away, according to a new forecast.
DNV GL has launched an international industry consortium in collaboration with Dutch glass production expert company Celsian to develop the technology required for a gradual transition from natural gas to hydrogen as a fuel in energy-intensive industrial production processes.
The fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic is set to significantly reduce global long-term energy demand, according to new research by DNV GL.
The road to large-scale hydrogen production is likely to be long and riddled with tough challenges, particularly if it is to become a fixture offshore.
DNV GL recently produced a position paper Heading For Hydrogen. It is the findings of a survey of more than 1,000 senior oil and gas professionals covering safety, infrastructure, CCS and policy.
Hydrogen production has claimed pole position in the oil and gas sector’s decarbonisation drive, a survey shows.
