There is a rapidly increasing need for carbon neutrality and decarbonization. The oil and gas development industries must continue to play an important role in the stable energy supply to Japan while addressing the demands for decarbonization by the international community. CCS, an important element for decarbonization, is an area where the oil and gas development industries have knowledge and experience. JOGMEC has established the CCS Group to support CCS initiatives by Japanese companies. The key technologies of CCS include areas where we JOGMEC have accumulated knowledge over many years, such as subsurface technologies related to CO2 storage stability and long-term behavior, and technologies for optimizing CO2 separation/capture/injection. We will promote the businesses for CCS promotion in cooperation with worldwide institutions based on the needs of Japanese companies.
