As more countries and companies around the world make commitments to a net-zero future, focus is intensifying on the role of natural gas. Clay Neff, president of Chevron Middle East, Africa, South America Exploration and Production, participated in a CERAWeek panel, “The Role of Gas in Decarbonization.”
