Net Zero

Emerging Net Zero Technology Application

Net zero technologies (15) have been reported in 2020 for the first time in the Operator technology plans submitted to the OGA. Based on initial analysis of this years’ submissions (2021), industry’s interest in these technologies is growing fast.

Technologies in this area include solutions to abate main sources of carbon emissions from O&G installations (flaring and power). Applications range from energy efficiency measures to reduce power consumption, to alternative power sources using renewables or electrification via cables from the shore.
