Minister Savage was part of a Canadian delegation that met with senior leaders, researchers and industry at the three-day Offshore Northern Seas (ONS) Conference in Stavanger, Norway. From Aug. 29 to Sept. 1, the minister promoted Alberta’s energy supply and services capability and technologies, all of which will be critical to meeting future emissions targets around the globe.

Minister Savage also spoke at the Net Zero Market session exploring carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS). Alberta is a global leader in carbon capture technologies, with many jurisdictions seeking to learn from the province’s experience and expertise.

“When it comes to reducing emissions and meeting future climate ambitions, Alberta has the innovation, technology and expertise that the world needs. In Norway, I heard repeatedly that our practical approach to responsible energy development is vital to ensuring that people have access to safe, reliable and affordable energy while also reducing emissions. Alberta’s energy is part of the long-term solution for the world and will be for decades to come.”
