The Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC) is developing a new roadmap to help businesses reach net zero emissions.
In collaboration with the North Sea Transition Authority (NSTA), it will provide emission baselines and support the implementation of reduction strategies with new technologies.
North Sea licensees have to outline the investments they will make in their projects to quash emissions going forward, which the NZTC will help them in achieve.
The technology roadmap will judge the readiness of technologies, what changes may be needed and how much it will cost asset operators to integrate.
The plan is to move firms away from using predictive carbon modelling to more concrete solutions that ensure data is tracked properly and goals are achieved.
The roadmap will be released in September.
Rebecca Allison, Chief Operating Officer at the NZTC, said: “The roadmap will be a vital resource for operators of both fixed and floating installations and onshore terminals. They will be able to identify the readiness of different technologies and understand the specific measurement and monitoring requirements unique to their operations.”
“Since different operators have different emissions profiles, it is essential for each asset operator to accurately measure and monitor emissions such as carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide and methane,” NSTA’s Carlo Procaccini added.
