Climate warning

Emissions of Abu Dhabi oil company owned by COP28 President to increase more than 40% by 2030.

The hypocrisy, the politics, lack of good will and dirty tricks serve to make the climate crisis war extremely complex.
The journal reports that the oil company run by the president of this year’s UN climate conference is set to increase the emissions from its oil and gas products by more than 40% by 2030, according to analysis by Global Witness.
Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) produced about 957 million barrels of oil and 62 billion cubic meters of gas last year and this is set to increase to 1.3 billion barrels and 88 billion cubic meters respectively in 2030.
Adnoc’s CEO Sultan Al-Jaber, who is also the president for the UN climate talks at COP28, has emphasized publicly the need to phase down fossil fuels but this analysis has found his company may be doing the opposite.
Global Witness said they used industry-standard projections published by the research firm Rystad Energy on the expected levels of future production and calculated the subsequent increase in carbon emissions.
Looking at oil and gas assets owned or operated by Adnoc, including untapped reserves predicted to be used to meet future demand, they calculated that carbon emissions from oil and gas produced by the company will rise from 487 million tonnes of CO2 this year to 684 million tonnes in 2030 – an increase of just over 40%.
The analysts said this is a conservative estimate as it does not include other forms of hydrocarbons produced by Adnoc such as natural gas liquids or condensate.

                  This news highlights the urgent need for the oil and gas industry to transition towards renewable energy sources to mitigate the impact of climate change. As the owner of the COP28 presidency, Abu Dhabi should take a leadership role in reducing emissions and promoting sustainable practices.
