LowEmission is a research centre for low emission technology for petroleum activities on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS). World-leading Norwegian and international industrial entities including vendors, operators and energy companies join forces with globally recognised research groups at SINTEF and NTNU, and other top-rated universities and research institutes.The mission is to pave the road towards zero-emission production of oil and gas from the NCS.
LowEmission is organised in 9 subprojects (SP). Each SP focuses on different aspects of emissions reduction in the oil and gas industry. Together they work towards the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030.

OG21 presented its new strategy titled "A New Chapter" at the LowEmission Consortium Days in November 2021. As the title makes clear, the strategy constitutes a change of discourse for the Norwegian oil and gas industry, where decarbonisation takes the centre stage. We had a chat with OG21's Managing Director, Gunnar Lille.
