The Hot-Seat

A message from our Chairperson, Gary Bowerbank.

"As we approach our first virtual conference in May (do register before the spaces all go), I thought it was worth reflecting on the main theme of the conference. Most of us have been working in ‘traditional’ Gas Processing applications linked to oil and natural gas. And while these will feature heavily in the short and medium term, it is important to understand where our skills and knowledge can be used in the wider world of Gas Processing - be that biogas, hydrogen (blue or green), ammonia or CO2 capture and Utilisation/Storage. In the conference we will all learn a little more about what the Future of Gas may look like, but will also have the opportunity to share thoughts and ideas in networking/breakout sessions. I very much hope to ‘see’ many of you there and in the meantime feel free to share your own thoughts by emailing us at [email protected]."

Paper of the Month

This month we are looking back to a paper on Shells Sky Scenario from Eric Puik, Shell. Presented at our 2019 Spring Conference. In our May Conference this month, Shell will be presenting a different Shell Scenario, looking at Energy Transformation Scenarios.

"Sky: A scenario to meet the goals of the Paris agreement"

"Paris Agreement has sent a signal around the world: climate change is a serious issue that governments are determined to address.

Shell published its latest energy-system scenario, called Sky, which illustrates a technically possible, but challenging pathway for society to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Scenarios are not policy proposals – they do not argue for what should be done, nor forecasts – what will be done. They are not predictions, nor Shell business plans and investors should not rely on them to make decisions. Rather, they can help reveal useful insights for the present and provide flexible guidance around which actions and opportunities can form."
