Technical and business paths forward
Why large oil companies should be interested in this approach:
“Oil companies risk wasting $2.3 trillion of investments should demand peak in the next decade as the world works toward its goal of limiting global warming, according to a report from Carbon Tracker.” This is termed an "overhang of unneeded CAPEX"
Technical path forward: Further details are provided, including the overall integration of needed technical tasks; key issues which must be addressed in order to generate the next-level package which (barring any surprises) could be suitable for further investment, development, and implementation; and elements of the technical path forward in recent proposals.
Business path forward: Further details are provided, including an overall long-term roadmap to implementation. Some general considerations and challenges inherent in trying to move forward what economists call a large "public good" within the field of energy supply (which is essentially a commercial activity) are identified and discussed. The budget from one recent pre-proposal on this subject is included.
