The Program Topical Areas are as follows:

  • Oil scenarios: from peak oil to plenty of oil
  • Future of natural gas as a bridge and beyond
  • Nuclear energy as an alternative
  • Solar energy now and in the future
  • Wind energy
  • Hydrogen, methanol and ethanol as fuels for the future
  • Energy from biomass and wastes
  • Carbon management
  • Impact of energy consumption on the environment
  • Energy efficiency
  • Transport energy
  • Research and development needs in the oil and gas industries

The oil and gas industry is in the midst of a historic shift. Stranded resources are now on the verge of profitable realization. Feedstocks that have been marginally utilized to date as a result of high upgrading costs are becoming attractive ventures in the context of current energy price levels, the growing worldwide energy demand, and pressure for environmentally responsible methods. More than ever, technology will be the driver to meet these challenges. It is hoped that Energy 2030 will forge a solid foundation in meeting these objectives.
