Hydrogen

 Pros & Cons

“Hydrogen is a very interesting element, and extremely topical in the context of the Energy Transition.  Hydrogen can be burned to produce energy without releasing greenhouse gases; and it can be piped and stored, which means that – unlike wind and solar – it is a “dispatchable” source of power.”

An Unprecedented Variety of Options
for the UK North Sea

The North Sea, in all national sectors, is a mature petroleum basin. As both production and tax receipts slowly decline, Government agencies – led by the UK’s OGA – have increasingly sought to focus on the survival of both the basin’s physical infrastructure and their nations’ companies and professional competencies. This drive is exemplified by the UK’s 2016 Maximising Economic Recovery (MER) strategy, which has the force of law.”
