Mike Simmons & Andy Davies, Halliburton

In this talk, we will explore the complex issues of energy transition and environmental sustainability, and demonstrate that geoscientists and the hydrocarbon industry will play a crucial role in supporting society through a period of unprecedented change in the coming decades. We will discuss: (i) the role affordable energy plays in society and energy poverty; (ii) the nature of the energy mix in coming decades and the pace of the energy transition; (iii) the evolving role geoscientists will play in securing energy from a variety of sources, whilst also supporting carbon storage needs; and (iv) how geoscience research can evolve to meet the needs of a changing society.
