The U in CCUS stands for utilisation or usage, in which, instead of storing captured CO2, it is reused, ideally in ways that lock the carbon into the resultant material. But what are the climate benefits of CCUS?

In the UK’s ambitious net zero regulatory context, exploration can make a positive contribution to energy security, emissions reduction, local employment and revenue and tax generation to facilitate and subsidise future renewables growth.
Geoscience magazine GEO ExPro Vol. 19, No. 2 is now available for download. This issue of GEO ExPro focuses on North West Europe; North Africa; Reservoir Management; Seismic Acquisition and Processing.
The transition to sustainable energy is one of the fundamental challenges we face over the coming decades and it is my intention that GEO ExPro will continue to report fully on this, whilst championing the genuinely critical role the oil and gas business plays in ensuring security of energy supply.

Between 2020 and 2030, several large-scale CCS facilities will become operational in north-west Europe. In this article, we take a closer look at the geophysical and geological properties of those sites - focusing on Northern Lights, Northern Endurance and Acorn.
If you are a big emitter of carbon, then reaching net zero means investing in carbon offsets – in the short term at least - and it’s perhaps no surprise that oil and gas companies around the world have become big players in the offset market.
Effective use of digital tools is vital for an affordable net zero future.
