The future of gas in the energy mix

DNV GL Group President and CEO Remi Eriksen calls for a greater gas industry commitment to Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) at ONS 2016.

ONS, Stavanger, Norway: Fugitive methane emissions and a real commitment to downstream Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) are two issues the natural gas industry must address if it is to enjoy long-term public and policy support. It could be the ideal partner in a sustainable future energy mix, where the flexibility of gas complements the variability of renewables to ensure steady energy supply, taking coal out of the picture.
