The Middle East region is at the center of today’s global energy supply, and will be critical to the world’s transition to a low-carbon economy. Both governments and businesses in the region have played key roles in advancing carbon capture and storage, a technology essential to addressing global climate change.
This upcoming webinar will highlight the current state of CCS in the region, and point to where CCS is heading, by providing a “virtual tour” of and commentary on ADNOC’s Al Reyadah CCS facility – the world’s first on a steel manufacturing plant. Leaders from government and business will discuss the business rationale for the Al Reyadah project, its design and operation, challenges and surprises, future plans, and its relevance in the broader context of ADNOC’s business strategy and the energy transition.
