Since May 2021, Shell has expressed interest to develop ten new oil and gas extraction assets, which could lock in additional CO2 pollution (325 million metric tonnes) two times greater than the Netherlands’ total CO2 emissions in 2021.
Approving new gas pipelines and liquified natural gas export facilities would lead to hundreds of millions of tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year for decades to come.
This paper outlines priorities for the Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance (BOGA) and its members that were identified by civil society groups to turn what has remained a largely aspirational diplomatic initiative into a force for increased climate action in line with equity, justice, and science.
This briefing shows that companies are set to make £11.6 billion windfall on UK oil and gas in 2022 and why the UK government is missing this opportunity to fund an energy transition.
This briefing explains why financial flows to fossil fuels matter and how to use the data provided by the Public Finance for Energy Database to help secure a just energy transition.
With oil prices rising to near-record levels due to Russia’s ongoing war in Ukraine, companies producing oil and gas in the United States are in line to make tens of billions in additional profits. Under conservative estimates, we find the U.S. upstream oil and gas industry will collect a windfall of $37 to $126 billion in 2022 alone.
New analysis finds that revenues from oil and gas projects backed by European and U.S. companies have fueled Vladimir Putin’s regime to the tune of nearly USD 100 billion since 2014.
This briefing gives financial institutions an overview of the IEA’s first 1.5°C-aligned scenario and what it means for oil and gas. We show that the IEA’s conclusion about ending new oil and gas field development is not a product of scenario design; it’s the arithmetic of 1.5°C.
This briefing reveals that over the last 10 years, the Norwegian government awarded as many exploration licenses (700) as in the 47 years prior, making Norway Europe’s most aggressive explorer for new oil and gas. Norway claims to be a climate leader, but its actions suggest otherwise.
Asia is one of the few remaining growth markets for gas. The fossil fuel industry and its proponents are pushing to develop $379 billion of gas terminals, pipelines and power plants in Asia over the next decade. Roughly three-quarters of all Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) import terminals in development globally are planned for Asia. This aggressive buildout ignores a simple truth.
