Workshop 2

SOGAT Workshop 2 - GASCO and Al Reyadah Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage Awareness

The historical landmark agreement reached by the world at the Conference of the Parties (COP21) December 2015 set an ambitious target: to limit the increase of the global average temperature to well below 2°C. Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is an essential element of the portfolio of measures that is needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and ultimately reach this target. Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has taken a lead in the Middle East by Al Reyadah, a joint venture between Masdar and ADNOC, to be the first specialized company focused on exploring and developing commercial-scale CCUS project, particularly focusing on CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR). An integral plan of the ADNOC Gas Master Plan going forward incorporates these features.

Therefore, this workshop will give the opportunity to learn from experts with more than a decade of experience in CCUS area. This workshop will also highlight the learnings from current CCUS demonstration projects. The information provided during this workshop will be beneficial to Engineers, Scientists, Managers, Policy makers who are currently looking into various aspect of CO2 capture project development.

Please note that this workshop will be highly interactive and will therefore provide ample opportunity to raise your concerns on CCUS.

This Workshop is FREE TO ATTENDand delegates must pre-register.
