Supply Decarbonisation

The Supply Decarbonisation session focuses on our ambitious programme to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from oil and gas production. One way to do this is to use electricity from renewable energy like offshore wind to deliver cleaner energy and achieve platform electrification. Another way is to implement our Methane Action Plan to cut emissions and this session explores how companies are progressing in both these key areas.
