Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center on Wednesday, December 15, from 9:00 – 10:30 am EST for a private and off-the-record workshop on the role of oil and gas in a net-zero world. This event is part of the Global Energy Center’s “Oil and Gas Net-Zero” project, which builds on its 2020 report The Role of Oil and Gas Companies in the Energy Transition, and examines the technologies, policies, and business models that will define the role of oil and gas in a net-zero world.

As the world pursues decarbonization and emissions reduction technologies in the pursuit of net-zero, oil and gas will continue to play a role in the energy system. This only underscores that oil and gas must also be a part of a broader net-zero conversation, and the technologies and business models needed to decarbonize the industry should not be forgotten as policymakers aggressively pursue much-needed climate action. However, oil and gas both face challenges which the industry will need to navigate as a net-zero conversation continues to evolve.

While oil and gas will remain an important part of the energy mix even in a net-zero world, producers must consider their role in a net-zero world, effectively communicate their own commitment to the global consensus to decarbonize and mitigate the effects of climate change, and work to deploy the accompanying technologies, business strategies, and policy frameworks in partnership with the private sector, broader public, and policymakers so those commitments can be taken seriously. 

Please join this conversation via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone. If you wish to join the question and answer period, you must join by app or web. Register below to receive further information on how to join the virtual audience.
