Publication type: White Paper
ARPEL has developed the White Paper Energy Transitions in Latin America and the Caribbean - The role of the oil and gas industry as a contribution to the development of a road map for Energy Transitions in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC).
In 2018, oil and gas provided 70% of the energy in LAC; therefore, the sector is an essential partner in the sustainable development of the region. By using their abilities, competencies and resources, ARPEL member companies will play a fundamental role in supporting the Energy Transitions process throughout the Region.
The document describes some of the main issues that the oil and gas industry and key LAC interest groups must address. Among others, these include access to energy, energy efficiency, technology neutrality, carbon capture, carbon pricing and energy integration.
The document reflects the commitments of ARPEL and its member companies to collaborating with governments, companies, investors, consumers and civil society in order to advance the Energy Transitions process in LAC.
