Offshore Energy System Integration: Challenges and Opportunities in the North Sea

A panel discussion with Q&A brought to you by the Centre for Energy Transition

Energy transition presents both challenges and opportunities for offshore energy.

On the one hand, the Oil and Gas (O&G) sector faces the challenges of decarbonising existing operations in the short term, as well as decommissioning retired infrastructure in the longer term; However, on the other hand, the offshore renewables (especially wind) sector is expanding at a rapid rate, with challenges relating to logistics, maintenance and energy transmission, for example.

Both sectors employ similar approaches, technologies and skills, meaning there are many synergies that may lead to mutual benefits if energy system integration opportunities are exploited.

Examples include the electrification of operating O&G platforms, repurposing platforms to produce hydrogen and/or pipelines to transport it, and exploiting depleted hydrocarbon reservoirs for carbon dioxide and/or hydrogen storage.

This session will provide cutting-edge insights into current and future developments in offshore energy system integration and will feature some of the leading experts in industry, research and policy.
