The hydrocarbon industry is currently facing a systemic change that affects its very foundations. The entire oil chain is being impacted.
What are the changes already underway and what are the likely developments?
What are the risks and opportunities for oil, gas and hydrogen specialists?

Objective of the ACP
– A place of reflection, a force for proposals to – IOC (international operators) – NOC (national companies) – Oil service companies – Investment funds – Local authorities – Governments
– on issues such as – the low-carbon transition of the hydrocarbon industry – safety / HSE – training and partnerships to develop “local content”
Why is the Hydrocarbon Industry transitioning to Low-carbon?
– the use of hydrocarbons is cited, along with coal, as the main factor in the increase of GHGs (greenhouse gases).
– the hydrocarbon industry cannot continue to operate without taking into account its global ecological impact
Now is the time to harness the potential of hydrogen to play a key role in a clean, secure and affordable energy future (IEA Recommendations in June 2019 at G20 Japan)
