As the energy transition becomes more and more crucial to our everyday lives, it is important to create an open dialog connecting the oil and gas industry with policymakers. The Oil and Natural Gas Technology Symposium: Focus on Sustainability, held virtually on 6–7 April 2021, created an opportunity for this open dialog. This event was collaboratively developed by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG). The purpose of this program was to share innovations that improve efficiency, sustainability, reduce environmental impact, and enhance recovery. Additionally, the speakers addressed the role of oil and natural gas in the coming energy transition.
