Suzie Ferguson, Carbon Capture Technical Lead, Wood

Keynote Insight:

With exciting advancements and cost reductions in renewable power, green hydrogen production and other green technologies in recent years, some argue that carbon capture and storage (CCS) is not required and only exists as an excuse to prolong the life of the oil and gas industry.  Meanwhile, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, amongst others, states clearly that CCS is essential to achieving net zero. Suzie will present the fundamentals of CCS technologies and their applications while exploring the role that CCS is expected to play which grants it the status of an “essential technology”.

Suzie's Bio:

Suzie is the Carbon Capture Technical Lead in Wood’s Specialist Engineering and Consulting team and has been working on CCS and decarbonisation projects for 13 years.  She has worked on a number of the UK Government competition FEED projects, undertaken extensive benchmarking of different types of process plants with CO2 capture, from oil refineries to glass plants, and has evaluated many novel CO2 capture technologies on behalf of potential investors. Most recently Suzie has been working on the Humber Zero and Net Zero Teesside low carbon industrial cluster projects.
