    Can Gas Compete in Latin America?

    Panel Gas & LNG
    South America’s Southern Cone has abundant low-cost gas resources, particularly in Argentina’s Vaca Muerta and Brazil’s Pre-salt. However, there is uncertainty if these resources will reach their full potential and how gas will compete against alternative energy sources in the medium to long term. What conditions are necessary for gas to be competitive and to realize its potential in the region? What are the roles of the private sector, the NOCs, and governments? What is the window of opportunity for these resources to be developed?

    Decarbonization Challenges & Technology Pathways

    Panel Carbon Management/Decarbonization

    Decarbonizing the energy matrix and other high-carbon footprint industries is the critical path to minimizing global emissions and achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. However, reaching net-zero emission will demand a herculean effort, given the technology challenges and the scale of investment demanded. What complementary technologies offer the potential to achieve the scale and economic competitiveness required to make decarbonization a reality at a reasonable cost for society? What are the roles of energy companies, technology firms, infrastructure developers, and governments in this process? What policies are needed to spur investments and accelerate technology development?
