Saudi Aramco is sponsoring the first international Carbon capture, utilization, and storage conference (iCCUS), held under the patronage of HRH Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, Saudi Minister of Energy, and HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, Bahraini Minister of Oil, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Riyadh (February 25-26).
The conference represents a major gathering of international and regional energy leaders and policy makers to discuss high impact solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the energy sector. Delegates are discussing progress towards a circular carbon economy, in which CO2 and methane emissions are reduced, reused, recycled and ultimately removed from the atmosphere. The discussions are focusing on how to unlock the potential of CCUS, a pivotal technology in which Saudi Aramco continues to invest.Saudi Aramco President and CEO Amin H. Nasser said: “The world faces a dual challenge: meeting growing energy demand while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We are leveraging 4IR technology solutions to work on the ‘4Rs of reduce, reuse, recycle and remove’ as part of our climate and sustainability efforts. High impact technological solutions, such as CCUS, can address this dual challenge while contributing to economic development.”
