OGT 2022: Macro-scale of the green Agenda and local approaches

The new edition of the annual oil and gas forum of Turkmenistan – OGT 2022 – is published under the title "Environmental aspects of hydrocarbon resources extraction". On Thursday, June 23, Ashgabat once again gathers leaders from government authorities, businessmen and experts of the energy sector to discuss policies, strategies and tactics in the changing – not lightning fast, but radically – landscape of the field of activity. Representatives of international organizations, academic and diplomatic circles, environmentalists and investors, financiers and researchers, analysts and innovators are invited to the discussions. The "green turn", of course, did not happen immediately on OGT, its previous editions have already broadcast this topic from different angles, and very intensively, but this time it has become prevalent precisely in the aspect of the transition to the energy of a new era. The main organizational stages of the "transition" and its key stages are indicated in the topics of the sessions on the work program of the forum. Since the work of the forum is based on the intersection of hydrocarbons and ecology, most of the reports and presentations will focus on an adequate resource response to global challenges in energy supply today and tomorrow due to new approaches and technologies. More than 100 participants from different countries have registered at the current Ashgabat forum, which will be held in a hybrid format, and more than 30 speakers representing the world's leading oil and gas companies and various international institutions are expected to speak.
