National Oil Companies and the Energy Transition: Looking to COP28
5:00-5:30 p.m. EDT – Reception
5:30-7:00 p.m. EDT – Panel Discussion
National oil companies from emerging markets produce about 50 percent of the world’s oil, hold about 50 percent of global refining capacity, and own most of the world’s oil and gas reserves. With oil prices at more than $80/barrel, they are also generating significant oil revenues. With COP28 taking place in the United Arab Emirates, a major oil exporting country with a strong national oil company, the role of oil and gas in the energy transition, and that of national oil companies, is going to take center stage in the discussions in Dubai.
What are these companies’ decarbonization goals? What kind of investments are they making in clean energy technologies, if any? Join the Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) as we discuss the policy and investment choices of national oil companies in the energy transition.
