June 2021

Encouraged by the concept of the circular economy, the oil and gas industry can take waste by-products to create new, useful products, such as water and even hydrogen. With the oil and gas industry having the chance to reduce waste by reusing and recycling, we explore how commercially viable these options could be and what stands in the way to this method’s wide adoption.

Also in this issue, we speak to seabed mappers Fugro about their contribution to a project that wants to fill in the world’s seas with public geodata before the year 2030 and look at how South America’s industry has resisted the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Plus, we ask whether small-scale divestment could make a big difference to offshore finances, delve into how marketing for oil and gas has changed during the green revolution, and see what lessons can be learnt from the five stranded Alco Shipping employees.
