11 Outline  About Us  Carbon Monetization

12 Stabilizing atmospheric carbon at 500 ppmv will require dramatic reductions in CO 2 e emissions over time Stern Review Target of 20 GtCO 2 e Current and Projected CO 2 e Emissions (Gigatons) 68% Reduction 76% Reduction Sources: Stern Review, New York Times

13 It will take a portfolio of technologies and $40-50 trillion to reduce carbon emissions by 50% in Million Sq. M. Solar PV Annually 32 New Nuclear Plants Annually 17,759 Wind Turbines Annually 70% Gain in FuelMileage and 95% Advanced Cars CCS for 55 Coal Plants Annually Double World’s Energy Efficiency 50% Reduction in CO 2 e Emissions by 2050 Sources: Chevron, International Energy Agency

14 Although Copenhagen failed to produce a global accord, several emerging economies pledged voluntary carbon cuts

15 To date, a total of 55 countries have pledged voluntary or mandated cuts in carbon emissions New Zealand Australia China Japan Indonesia South Korea Morocco Sierra Leone Finland Sweden Norway Great Britain Ireland Spain Portugal France Italy Germany Poland Kazakhstan India Russia South Africa Syria Israel Ethiopia Madagascar Democratic Republic of the Congo Romania Greece Costa Rica Brazil Alaska USA Canada Moldova Austria Belgium Bulgaria Cyprus Czech Denmark Croatia Maldives Marshall Islands Georgia Jordan Singapore Macedonia Estonia Hungary Latvia Lithuania Luxembourg Malta Netherlands Slovaki a Slovenia

16 TransportDistributionTotal 6% RefiningE&P Oil and gas companies will be forced to assess and cut greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain … 1% 12%1% 80%100% Combustion / End-Use CO 2 e Emissions Across Oil and Gas Value Chain (Based on Emissions in 2008)

17 Source Category Combustion Vents Area Non-Routine and Indirect Representative Sources  Boilers, heaters, engines, turbines, incinerators, and flares  Vehicles, barges, ships, and railcars  FCC catalyst regeneration, hydrogen plants, and coking units  Storage tanks and loading racks  Fuel gas system and other equipment leaks  Wastewater collection and treating equipment  Equipment blowdown and heater / boiler-tube decoking  Pressure relief valves and emergency shutdown devices  Offsite production of electricity, steam, and hydrogen... But this will be difficult because of the fragmented source of greenhouse gas emissions across the value chain Source of CO 2 e Emissions in Oil Refineries

18 Petroleum companies will have to respond using three levers – corporate strategy, innovation, and carbon markets Key Carbon Monetization Levers Illustrative List Corporate Strategy  Baseline carbon footprint  Benchmark with competitors  Plan strategy through war-games Innovation  Improve and optimize operations  Deploy new technologies  Invest in emerging technologies Carbon Markets  Understand carbon markets  Evaluate and nurture offsets  Develop CDM projects 12 3

19 Corporate strategy must drive carbon monetization initiatives Key Carbon Monetization Levers Illustrative List Corporate Strategy  Baseline carbon footprint  Benchmark with competitors  Plan strategy through war-games 1

20 A four-step approach to develop a corporate carbon strategy Description Understand the current state of an enterprise Identify and invest in “no regret” or low- cost options Engage and monetize through carbon markets Pave path to “low- carbon” future  Estimate company’s carbon footprint  Develop competitive intelligence  Review and project regulatory scenarios  Inventory options to improve operations  Define near-term risks and responses  Deploy engagement and advocacy plan  Identify and engage carbon markets  Inventory near- term projects, e.g., CDM  Pilot 2-3 projects to gain experience  Integrate learnings from initial efforts  Establish long- term carbon strategy  Implement strategy with dedicated team Tasks Initiative ManageBaselineMonetizeAmplify 1324

21 Scenario planning can help explore strategic themes … Break- through! Signposts include many demos, early adoption, and integration with infrastructure Winners are majors with equity in innovators from corporate venture groups Signposts include more voluntary cuts, growth of shale gas, and higher gas penetration Gas Galore! Winners include players with assets producing or using gas Winners include early movers in cleantech Clean Clean Energy! Signposts include public incentives, leapfrogging by BRICs, and price inelasticity Winners include conventional oil and gas majors Signposts include more squabbling, new discoveries, and continued recession Oil is King! Degree of Energy Affordability Degree of Global Cooperation on Carbon

22 Regulatory Scenarios … War games can help companies test efficacy of multiple strategic options Strategy and Operations Stakeholder Impact Oil Major Oil Super Major Ind.

23 Innovation and technology are critical enablers Key Carbon Monetization Levers Illustrative List Innovation  Improve and optimize operations  Deploy new technologies  Invest in emerging technologies 2

24 In upstream, fugitive emissions can be reduced through incremental – but NPV positive – improvements in operations The Problem  Nearly 600,000 pneumatic devices in U.S gas industry …  … Used as liquid level controllers, pumps, and pressure regulators …  …Each emit 100 avoidable tons CO2e/yr of methane The Solution  Replace high-bleed inventory with low-bleed devices  Verify reductions in emissions  Audit and certify emission reductions  Monetize resulting CERs The Opportunity  Developed the first U.S. carbon offset methodology for fugitive methane emission reductions in oil / gas  Established baseline without direct measurements  Piloted retrofit program in Washakie Basin, WY  Measured leaks before and after with a third-party  Completed several hundred retrofits within a month  Observed devices after installation to allay concerns about failures and “upsets”  Planning next phases in Oklahoma and Texas  Auditing emission reductions of 65, ,000 tons of CO2e per year

25 Similarly, refineries too offer “low-hanging fruit” although deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions are expensive Carbon Abatement Opportunities in Refineries Life Cycle Cost, $/tCO 2 e Potential Reduction in Refinery CO 2 e Emissions, Percent  Sequester CO 2 from units  Integrate gasification in refining  Export fuel oil  Use cogeneration  Reduce hydrogen use  Clean heaters  Use more exchangers  Recover APH heat  Switch fuel gas There are a number of “no regret” options that can pay off in less than three years
