The Romanian delegation is led by Mr. Pavel-Casian Nițulescu, Secretary of State within the Ministry Energiei and includes representatives of important Romanian companies in the oil sector, such as CONPET SA and OIL TERMINAL SA.
Organized in a still extremely complicated world energy context, this edition of the World Petroleum Congress proposes a topic of discussion of major interest – “Energy Transition-The Path to Net Zero”.
The challenges and realities of the energy transition, energy security and resilience in energy supply, responsible management of the energy transition, innovative technologies for clean energy, carbon storage, the role of liquefied natural gas, carbon reduction solutions in the oil and natural gas industry, the role of hydrogen in the energy transition, are just some of the topics addressed at this new edition of the World Petroleum Congress.
An efficient and fair transition can be achieved by harnessing the energy potential of each country and especially its energy specificities. Natural gas and nuclear power have already proven to complement renewables, providing support and flexibility in supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The energy crisis has shown that countries need, first of all, security of energy supply and affordable prices, as these two pillars are the basis of sustainability in the energy sector, in parallel with measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions . In the current geopolitical context, energy security can no longer be approached only as a national issue, but as a European and global security issue.
During the participation in the Ministerial Round Table organized within the Congress, Pavel-Casian Nițulescu, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Energy emphasized:
“In order to achieve our decarbonisation goals and to maintain the stability of the national energy system, it is necessary to use all available sources with low carbon emissions such as natural gas, with a gradual transition to renewable gases, as well as nuclear energy. Certainly, the desire for a green economy and energy transition also belongs to the oil and natural gas industry. In our view, natural gas represents a viable, affordable and technologically mature alternative that can contribute to significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and a balanced transition process. By implementing energy capacities based on natural gas, Romania does not increase its dependence on the import of natural gas, benefiting from its own resources..”
Romania also participates in the International Exhibition that is organized at each edition of the World Petroleum Congress, with a stand that enjoyed the attention of the many participants in this event.
