IRPC Operations: Shell makes heavy investments in energy transition, decarbonization

Andy Gosse, President, Shell Catalysts & Technologies, delivered the second keynote of Day 1 of IRPC Operations. Gosse spoke about the projects enabling the decarbonization of Shell's 400,000-bpd Pernis refinery in the Netherlands, including the Porthos carbon-capture-and-storage (CCS) project, a new Renewable Refining Process unit to produce biofuels at Pernis, and green hydrogen production through the Rotterdam Energy Hub.

With these projects, Shell will advance its purpose of providing more and cleaner energy solutions to power progress and accelerate the transition to net-zero emissions. Shell is also targeting a net-zero emissions business by 2050, in step with society and customer demands.

Over the current decade, Shell is implementing other energy transition efforts such as eliminating routine flaring and maintaining methane emissions intensity below 0.2%; shifting to more natural gas in the hydrocarbon mix (55%); producing eight times more low-carbon fuels than today and increasing low-carbon fuel sales to more than 10% of transport fuel sales (up from 3% in 2020); and targeting over 25 MMtpy of carbon captured and stored (by 2035), among other efforts.
