Petroleum Review November 2019

Petroleum Review places the spotlight on decarbonising transport this month. We look at how the biofuels market is gaining confidence under the Renewable Energy Directive II, which calls for all EU Member States to require fuel suppliers to supply a minimum of 14% of the energy consumed in road and rail transport by 2030 as renewable energy. We also look at prospects for natural gas as a road transport fuel alternative to the HGV sector. Meanwhile, competition and innovation abound in the EV charging sector, which is on a rapid growth trajectory.

The magazine also highlights what the rail sector is doing in the drive to decarbonise, as well as recent developments in e-shipping and a growing interest in sustainable aviation fuels.

Our regional focus is on the Asia-Pacific, specifically China, where gas is viewed as the backbone fuel for future economic development, as well as Indonesia and Japan, which are repositioning their domestic energy mixes, with renewables, geothermal, gas and nuclear on the rise.

This month’s issue closes with a look at how oil and gas companies are increasingly looking to operate outside their traditional comfort zone, or risk falling by the wayside as the world transitions to a low carbon future.
