Tracking the Energy Transition: Cleaner Shipping and a Push To Decarbonize Asia Pacific






A pilot project will explore onboard carbon capture for container ships, and two heavy-hitters are teaming up to find decarbonization paths in the Asia Pacific region. Elsewhere, wind and solar are on track to pass coal in the race to generate electricity.

COP28 side event - The 2023 IMO GHG Strategy: Defining the global level-playing-field for shipping decarbonization



Dubai , United Arab Emirates
09 diciembre 2023


[Video message]

Your excellencies,


Colleagues from the International Maritime Organization and the International Renewable Energy Agency,

Ladies and gentlemen,

Dear friends,

Our maritime transport system is the lifeblood of the global economy, facilitating over 80 per cent of the world's trade volume.

Yet, this vital sector also contributes to nearly 3 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.

As sea-borne trade has grown, emissions have escalated by 20 per cent in just the past decade, a trajectory we simply cannot afford to continue.

Our message today, here at the COP, is very clear: bold, global action is necessary to decarbonize shipping.

However, to do this effectively, we must engage with

The €22.5 million funding, part of the Eurazeo Sustainable Maritime Infrastructure (ESMI) fund, marks the fifth transaction for the initiative.

The vessel, also known as the Samskip SeaShuttle, is currently under construction at Cochin shipyard in India, and is expected to be delivered to Samskip in the second half of 2025. Once delivered, this vessel will be one of the world’s first and largest vessels to be propelled with a hydrogen propulsion system.

The Samskip SeaShuttle will be fueled by green hydrogen in the ports

Associated natural gas production has tripled since 2018 in top three Permian oil plays

Associated natural gas production has tripled since 2018 in top three Permian oil plays

Data source: Enverus DrillingInfo
Note: Information on EIA's classification of oil and natural gas wells is available in our Drilling Productivity Report Supplement. The three major oil plays are the Spraberry, Wolfcamp, and Bone Spring plays. Data reflect the average from January through July 2023.

Production of associated-dissolved natural gas, or associated natural gas, which is natural gas produced from predominantly oil wells, has nearly tripled since 2018 in the three top-producing tight oil plays in the Permian region. Associated natural gas from the Wolfcamp, Spraberry, and Bone Spring plays averaged a combined 13.7 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in the first seven months of 2023, up from an average of 4.7 Bcf/d in 2018, according to data from Enverus
