CCUS Conference 2022

21 – 24 February 2022, Virtual Events

Programme Now Available – Download Here.

Building upon the success of SPE Aberdeen and PESGB’s inaugural Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage technical event in 2020, we are pleased to announce the CCUS virtual conference for 2022.

CCUS is an essential component of delivering the UK Government’s 2050 Net Zero promise.  The full-chain process of capturing, treating, compressing, utilising, transporting and injecting CO2 deep underground will require all the skills that exist in the oil and gas industry.  All these skills can be re-purposed to plan and deliver successful CCUS projects within commercial models that are either being developed by regulators and governments or are already in existence in some countries.

The SPE/PESGB CCUS 2022 conference aims to focus on the key technical issues through four themes and will discuss the technical solutions required to achieve the goals of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) being held in Glasgow in November 2021.

Carbon Footprint – Virtual vs In-person

The decision to hold the CCUS 2022 conference virtually was in part driven by the desire to keep our own carbon footprint as low as possible! Ian Thomas, Vysus, has compared the carbon footprint of a virtual event to an in-person event and the results can be downloaded here.

CCUS 101 – A Beginners Guide to CCUS

Our Net Zero Committee is hosting, on behalf of the CCUS Conference 2022, a beginners guide to Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage, 15th February. It will enable people to learn some more about the basics from why it is needed through how CO2 can be captured and where it can be stored. An overview of global projects will also be given. As well as for those who just want to learn some more, it is also intended to provide an introduction for people attending the conference to enable them to gain more from the event. Details and booking here.
