Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

For natural gas to make a serious contribution to energy security and sustainable economic development, political and economic challenges need first to be addressed. These challenges were alerted by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), stating that carbon emissions need to be severely reduced to avoid the irreversible impacts on climate change.

The UN Secretary-General himself urged investors to look to renewable energy and develop a sustainable future. So, what does sustainability imply when it correlates to gas and is it a real possibility?

Sustainable gas is the use of natural gas as a key player in a low carbon environment and the development/deployment of technologies that will enable it to fulfill that role. Obviously, we have to make the most efficient use of our energy sources while paying attention to their cost and environmental impact.

Therefore, the challenge for energy policymakers is to create a framework within which natural gas is at the forefront of the energy mix since natural gas reserves can meet decades of demand. With the newly available unconventional gas sources boosting natural gas supplies, the low carbon energy future is easily and sustainably extended into the next century.

This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:

  • Natural gas low carbon energy future and sustainability
  • What sustainability means when it relates to natural gas
  • Drivers of renewable energy development
  • The need for energy policymakers to create a framework within which natural gas is at the forefront in the energy mix
  • The prerequisite for political and economic challenges to be tackled if natural gas is to make a full impact to energy security and sustainable economic growth
  • The importance of natural gas as a key player in a low carbon environment, and the growth of technologies that will enable it to fulfill that role
