  • 1:45 PM Narratives for the Global Gas Market Transformation Towards Viable Energy Transition and Energy Security

    Michael Stoppard, Chief Strategist, Global Gas, S&P Global Commodity Insights (moderator)

    (Plenary Session 1)

    The natural gas industry faces risks and opportunities across its entire value chain in the transition to net-zero emissions. Yet changing energy systems is a complex and long-term process and many see both a medium and long-term role for natural gas in the world's energy mix. Where it replaces today more polluting fuels, it improves air quality and limits emissions of carbon dioxide and provides accessible energy that helps nations address any number of challenges as they seek to grow their economies. In the longer term natural gas can be a driver of the energy transition because of its central role in the scaling up of new technologies. This session will address the inherent opportunities, challenges and limitations allowing the industry to compete as the world transitions to a low-carbon future.

    • How will gas companies evolve their strategies based on their current businesses and future aspirations?
    • What will be the role of the industry's existing infrastructure in utilizing new low carbon technologies?
    • What innovative technologies will the gas industry play a key role in developing?
    • How will CCUS technology and hydrogen production in the longer term enable natural gas to align with a net-zero pathway?
    • How could gas' role be undermined if flaring, venting, and fugitive methane emissions along the natural gas supply chain are not significantly addressed?

  • 3:00 PM Examining the Potential of CCUS in the Energy Transition

    Catherine Robinson, Executive Director, Gas, Power, and Climate Solutions, S&P Global Commodity Insights

    (Current Debates Program, Session 8)

    One of the critical strategies toward achieving a zero or low-carbon economy and deep decarbonization is encouraging investment in carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies. It is the only group of technologies that contribute to reducing emissions in key sectors directly and removing CO2 to balance emissions that cannot be avoided. CCUS can be retrofitted to existing power and industrial plants and is virtually the only technology solution for deep emissions reductions from heavy industries. However, CCUS projects lack sufficient policy support to obtain conventional financing. This session will examine the major CCUS technologies and the current conditions for investment, and review the current developments that could accelerate CCUS adoption.

  • 1:45 PM Impacts of Carbon Neutrality Targets on Global Economic Growth

    Jenny Yang, Senior Director, Gas, Power, and Climate Solutions, S&P Global Commodity Insights

    (Current Debates Program, Session 12)

    Reaching net-zero emissions will require significant investment in current and new clean technologies. Some economic sectors will benefit while others may decline. Opponents say layers of new regulations will hurt businesses, raise energy prices, cost jobs and burden economies. For many developing countries, the pressure to green their economies is beyond their financial means and they will require considerable financial aid to not only meet these goals but to dramatically increase support for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to climate change impacts. Proponents of the net-zero targets argue that emissions reductions and economic growth are not incompatible and in fact the development of new technologies will create new industries and jobs. This session will examine the uncertainty surrounding the economic impacts created by a transition to a net-zero emissions economy and the substantial challenges to completely decarbonizing our electricity, transportation and industrial sectors (in Asia or in Developing Countries).
