Beumelburg commented on the industry outlook, saying that it is an exciting time for the industry, which will receive unprecedented investment in the coming decades to realize energy transition. The challenge is to provide affordable, dependable energy that supports economic growth while aggressively decarbonizing. To achieve this goal, collaboration both within and outside of the industry is required, as is adopting a partnership mindset to accelerate the pace of innovation.
"That is why we must accelerate industry decarbonization while also increasing performance—to build the best version of oil and gas we can together."
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) will play a significant role in meeting existing decarbonization commitments. Schlumberger is advancing the deployment of CCS, according to Beumelburg, by bringing decades of experience gained on more than 100 projects to partnerships across multiple industries. On the subject of energy transition, Beumelburg emphasized the importance of diversifying the global energy mix with more low-carbon energy.
"We are excited to be a part of this and believe that our culture of science and engineering, global scope, and track record of technology commercialization make us a strong partner to scale new low-carbon innovations."
