Bringing together the story of emissions abatement and carbon strategy in Oil and Gas

Getting to a world of zero emissions, in theory, involves a relatively simple formulation. We need to assess and understand the source of emissions, determine what we can do to reduce those emissions, and then select what carbon instruments can offset the final, hard-to-decarbonize elements. In practice, the process is complex and involves huge uncertainties.

This is why, at the Carbon Management Americas Conference, from June 25-27 in Denver, we are bringing together the story of emissions abatement and carbon strategy. By uniting these critical elements, we drive market growth and pave the way for a sustainable future. Join us as we convene energy leaders in low-carbon and sustainability, spearheading innovations in methane management, CCUS development, and carbon markets.

Themes on the horizon:

Discover carbon innovations in oil and gas and the market outlook for energy transition
— Advance in methane reduction by moving from estimation to actual measurements
Paving the way for low Carbon solutions and economies with the latest climate technology (CCUS)
Deep dive into US compliance carbon markets and policy accelerating net-zero
— Focus on the balance of decarbonization and offsetting alongside voluntary carbon market pricing
