In a ceremony that felt like a scene from a visionary sci-fi movie, where the great minds of our time gather to pave the way for a future that’s greener and cleaner, Mr. Rangsan Bhengbhun, the astute Executive Vice President for Geosciences, Subsurface, and Exploration at PTT Exploration and Production Public Company Limited (PTTEP), alongside Professor Kazuo Yamamoto, the esteemed President of the Asian Institute of Technology, sealed a pact destined to change the course of our environmental future. Amidst the academic splendor of the Asian Institute of Technology in Pathum Thani province, these two giants in their fields came together to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) under the daring “PTTEP Subsurface University Energy Connect” project.

This isn’t just any agreement. Oh no, it’s a beacon of hope in the relentless fight against carbon emissions – a gallant leap towards a low-carbon society that we’re all dreaming of. The collaboration is a masterstroke, aiming to unfurl advancements in geoscience and petroleum engineering, shape the next generation of professionals in petroleum exploration and production, and scout for the next big carbon storage sites. This is about harnessing Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies – the superhero tech that might just save our planet.

But our superheroes, Mr. Rangsan Bhengbhun, and Professor Kazuo Yamamoto, didn’t stop there. They know too well that it takes a village, or in this case, a network of eminent institutions, to tackle a challenge of this magnitude. Under the visionary PTTEP Subsurface University Energy Connect project, PTTEP has linked arms with no less than eight prestigious organizations and universities. This formidable alliance includes the academic titans of Chulalongkorn University, Chiang Mai University, Khon Kaen University, Mahidol University, Kasetsart University, the innovative Synchrotron Light Research Institute (Public Organisation), Suranaree University of Technology, and of course, the Asian Institute of Technology itself.

This undertaking is more than just a partnership; it’s a symphony of intellect and innovation, where each entity brings its unique strengths to the table, united by a common goal – to spearhead the advancement of CCS technologies and usher in a greener, cleaner era. The ceremony, although wrapped in formality, was charged with an electric buzz of anticipation and hope for what this collaboration could achieve in our relentless pursuit of environmental sustainability.

As the ink dried on the MoU, it was clear that this was more than just a signing ceremony; it was a declaration of war against carbon emissions, a pledge to protect our environment, and a promise of a sustainable future. With the collective brainpower, resources, and determination of these partners, the “PTTEP Subsurface University Energy Connect” project is poised not just to lead the charge towards a low-carbon society but to redefine the battleground on which we fight for our planet’s future.

    Finally, some good news in our fight against climate change. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is the way to go, and it’s high time big corporations and academia joined forces to push this forward. Go green or go home!

    • Skeptic101 April 30, 2024

      CCS technology has been around for a while, and it’s not the panacea it’s made out to be. It’s an expensive and energy-intensive process. We should instead focus on reducing our carbon footprint through renewable energy sources.

      • GreenTechie April 30, 2024

        You have a point, Skeptic101, about the current limitations of CCS. But dismissing it outright ignores the potential improvements and breakthroughs that partnerships like PTTEP and AIT can achieve. It’s about investing in a range of solutions.

      • EcoWarrior22 April 30, 2024

        Exactly, @GreenTechie! It’s all about diversifying our efforts. Plus, the collaboration between such big names will surely accelerate improvements in CCS technology.

    • OptimistPrime April 30, 2024

      This is a monumental step! Combining resources and intellect from academia and industry can only mean faster and more efficient progress. Can’t wait to see the results.

      • Skeptic101 April 30, 2024

        Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, @OptimistPrime. These are just agreements. I’ll believe in the ‘monumental step’ when I see real, tangible outcomes that have a significant impact on our carbon emissions.

  2. RealistRay April 30, 2024

    Considering how much carbon the oil and gas industry emits, it’s ironic they’re trying to position themselves as part of the solution with CCS. Isn’t this just a way to avoid reducing their own carbon footprint?

    • FutureIsNow April 30, 2024

      I get where you’re coming from, but this could be a step in the right direction. If they’re investing in technology to mitigate the damage, it’s better than doing nothing at all. Plus, it sets a precedent for private-public partnerships.

      • ActivistMind April 30, 2024

        A step is not enough when we need to be leaping towards renewables. PTTEP’s involvement could be seen as greenwashing their image. We need a more radical shift away from fossil fuels.

    • RealistRay April 30, 2024

      Fair points all around. But I remain skeptical of the motives behind such moves by big oil and gas. Change is good, but the pace and intentions behind it matter just as much.

  3. TechGuru90 April 30, 2024

    The collaboration between PTTEP and AIT, along with other institutions, is a mega boost for CCS tech. Leveraging such diverse expertise could lead to breakthrough technologies that are both efficient and economically viable.

  4. ClimateKid April 30, 2024

    Does anyone else think it’s weird that universities are teaming up with oil companies? I learned in school that these companies are the bad guys when it comes to climate change.

    • EcoWarrior22 April 30, 2024

      It’s a complex issue, @ClimateKid. On one hand, these companies have contributed significantly to carbon emissions. On the other, their resources and expertise could be vital in developing technologies like CCS. It’s a fine line between collaboration and complicity.

      • ClimateKid April 30, 2024

        I see your point, @EcoWarrior22. It’s like we need their help but it’s also kinda giving them a pass for what they’ve done. I hope these techs really do help the planet.

    • GreenTechie April 30, 2024

      Understandable concerns, @ClimateKid, but we’re in a situation where all help is needed. The primary goal is to reduce global warming, and if former ‘bad guys’ can help, we might just need to accept their involvement.
