Exploring the Potential of Hydrogen Energy in Latin America and the Caribbean

27-28 October 2022
Buenos Aires, Argentina

Environmental risks posed by climate change create an urgent need to accelerate the pace at which the energy transition is taking place. Geoscientists and engineers working in today’s energy industry no longer look at the subsurface exclusively as a place to extract conventional resources like oil and gas, but also as a permanent sink for carbon dioxide emissions. In addition, through H storage, the subsurface becomes a “super battery” that can help to mitigate the intermittency of renewable energy sources.

Resource availability, access to technology, local conditions, public policies, and political considerations all determine the pace at which the emerging hydrogen economy will develop in the Latin American and Caribbean Region.

This AAPG workshop convenes geoscience professionals, engineers, economists and entrepreneurs from the energy industry, academia, and the investment sector to share ideas, best practices, and lessons learned to help the Region face the challenges associated with developing a hydrogen economy.

This in-person gathering provides an open and interactive format designed to facilitate learning, sharing, and open discussion among all attendees.

This workshop is organized by AAPG’s Latin America and Caribbean Region with local support from the Argentine Association of Petroleum Geologists and Geophysicists (AAGGP).

Exploring the Potential of Hydrogen Energy in Latin America and the Caribbean - Call for Abstracts Ends on 15 July, 2022

The Hydrogen 2022 technical program committee is accepting presentation proposals for all workshop sessions.

The committee has particular interest in presentations highlighting state-of-the-art concepts, methodologies, case histories and future directions relating to hydrogen in the Latin America and Caribbean Region.  They also seek case studies illustrating the successful implementation of new scientific techniques and technologies.

Presentation proposals will be reviewed, scored, and selected using the following criteria:

  • Relevance: Subject matter is timely, pertains to registrants, and is appropriate to the theme.
  • Usefulness: Contributes to new knowledge or new techniques/practice.
  • Object: Clearly states what the audience can expect to learn.
  • Quality: Ideas are organized and presented in a clear and logical way.
