CCS in the Middle East – Present and Future

27th January 2022

The Middle East region is at the center of today’s global energy supply, and will be critical to the world’s transition to a low-carbon economy. Both governments and businesses in the region have played key roles in advancing carbon capture and storage, a technology essential to addressing global climate change.

This 75-minute webinar highlighted the current state of CCS in the region, and pointed to where CCS is heading, with a showcase presentation on ADNOC’s Al Reyadah CCUS facility – the world’s first to capture CO2 from steel and the first CCUS facility in the Middle East region.  Leaders from government and business discussed the business rationale for CCUS, and how CCUS will contribute to the global energy transition.
