    Managing Hydrocarbon Emissions Across the Value Chain

    Panel Markets/Economics/Strategy

    GHG emissions have emerged as a key competitive metric for oil and gas companies. The debate around the short- and long-term roles of oil and gas in the energy transition is now mainstream, contentious, and shifting. What is the state of GHG emissions understanding (or lack thereof)? How could rising oil and gas ambition impact the outlook? What practical steps are companies taking to reduce their GHG footprint, particularly regarding methane? What is the path forward for the industry?
