Transitioning to Net-Zero: CCUS and the Role of Oil and Gas Producing Countries

The Workshop will consist of three sessions:

The Oil and the Middle East Research Programme of the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies was established in 2009. It is dedicated to the advanced study of contemporary oil markets, production, consumption and policy. With a historical focus on the resource-rich economies of the Middle East, research on the Programme.

Land-based LNG import terminals were introduced in the 1960s to import LNG from the first liquefaction plants in Algeria and the USA and dispatch gas into national distribution grids. Since then, some 150 LNG import terminals have been built around the world. In the last 20 years there has been a growth in the number of floating LNG import terminals.
