Low Carbon Strategies

06 Jun 2024

Low carbon strategies are called for every industry in view to have a sustainable and balanced planet, many industries have set up goals to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 through the energy transition. The oil and gas industry has an important role to play in the global energy transition by reducing emissions, decarbonizing energy production, and lowering carbon footprints. This session explores recent advancements made in low-carbon strategies and digital solutions related to scale control, including an overview of scale management in CCUS, evaluation of halite risk during CO2 injection, treatment optimization in geothermal reservoirs, and reuse of scale inhibitors. The knowledge, best practices, and findings shared from these papers can help accelerate our understanding of low-carbon strategies in scale control.
