    Shifting Strategies in CCS: Implementing the "Hub” concept

    Panel Carbon Management/Decarbonization

    Although the oil and gas industry has been involved in carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) development for over 50 years, only a handful of large-scale projects have been deployed. Hub CCUS has emerged as a promising pathway to accelerate deployment and enable the oil and gas industry to transition toward a low-carbon energy future. What is driving this new development approach? How are stakeholders adapting to support hub deployment? How will the commercial landscape evolve to reap the value of CCUS hubs?
