The Project

In January 2024, Catavento was invited by PPSA (Pré-sal Petróleo S.A.) to deliver a lecture to the company’s leadership on energy transition, decarbonization, and their impacts on the O&G sector.

In its presentation, Catavento demonstrated how energy production and usage are at the forefront of the global climate debate, representing over 70% of net greenhouse gas emissions. In this scenario, energy transition aims to reduce the share of fossil fuels in the energy matrix, with the growth of renewable and nuclear sources, at a pace that may vary depending on climate policies and technological development.

The impacts on the O&G sector were addressed considering both scenarios of oil and gas demand and the sector’s role in reducing its scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, which involves decarbonizing its own operations and diversifying its portfolio.

Finally, Catavento presented the particularities of the Brazilian climate and energy scenario, where energy and industry represent less than 1/3 of net greenhouse gas emissions. In Brazil, these mainly come from deforestation and agriculture. Despite this, it was pointed out that the Brazilian energy sector will not be immune to the transition and must undergo continuous growth in the share of renewable sources in the electric and energy matrices.

In this context, O&G production in the pre-salt, if maintaining its low emission intensity, can differentiate itself in the international market that still tends to demand fossil fuels. To this end, Catavento illustrated several ongoing initiatives in the country for sector decarbonization, such as methane emissions reduction, allocation of resources from the R&D clause, and company initiatives to reduce operational emissions and diversify.

The presentation was prepared by Clarissa Lins, Bruna Mascotte, and Pedro Guedes, and the lecture was conducted by Clarissa and Bruna.
