    Repurposing Oil & Gas Infrastructure as Low-carbon Assets

    Mature oil and gas infrastructure in some cases is finding a new lease on life within low-energy hubs. For example, certain depleted fields and facilities globally are providing a service to support CO2 transportation and sequestration, hydrogen production and the use of renewable energy sources. Is this the new “oilfield” of the future, or is this a niche? Under what conditions and in which regions might this repurposing of oil and gas assets become commonplace?
