- Ten Oil Majors Invest $1bn in Low-emission Technologies
Ten global oil and gas companies on Friday announced they will invest £1 billion in low-carbon-emission technologies to help combat climate change.
BG Group, BP, Eni, Pemex, Repsol, Saudi Aramco, Reliance Industries, Royal Dutch Shell, Statoil and Total — who account for almost a fifth of the world’s oil production — will fund the project through the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative, they said in a statement.
“We are on the look-out for potentially game-changing technologies that could have a long-term impact on greenhouse gas reduction,” said the group.
“To help us meet our ambition, we are launching OGCI Climate Investments, a partnership that will enable us to invest $1 billion over the coming years to support start-ups and help develop and demonstrate innovative technologies that have the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly”.
