The Role Of Reservoir Management In Lowering Our Carbon Footprint

When:  Oct 5, 2023 from 04:30 PM to 06:00 PM (WAT)
Associated with  Angola Section


Engineers and scientists play a critical role in advancing innovative solutions 
to manage the carbon footprint and support activities that lead us towards 
the ‘global net-zero’ objective. Our traditional oil and gas production operations 
have generally not taken a systems approach that could result in lower 
carbon intensity. Effective reservoir and asset management practices can help 
improve this situation. In addition, subsurface aquifers and depleted 
reservoirs are the ideal place for supporting other industries reduce their carbon 
footprint due to the lack of currently available scalable commercial 
technologies. Evolving reservoir management practices support this immediate 
This talk will focus on understanding the basics of carbon intensity in our 
operations, provide some thoughts on how reservoir management practices 
can help improve the operations and ponder the activities of carbon 
storage in reservoirs.
