Net-Zero Emissions Workshop


24–26 June 2024

SEG Europe Regional Advisory Committee is pleased to announce a Call for Abstracts submission for its 4th Net-Zero Emissions annual virtual workshop.

This year we are bringing together regulators and policy makers, operators, vendors, and academia to have a fruitful discussion on challenges and obstacles and how to collaboratively come together as geoscientists to overcome them. In addition, there will be prominent key speakers across Europe to highlight the most successful net-zero journeys across the industry.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to share your case studies, challenges, and proposed solutions. We are looking forward to receiving your submissions.

General topics: Emission reduction, CCS, Geothermal, Wind, Lithium and mineral exploration.
