The oil and gas sector is not only a major energy producer but also a major consumer of energy. Energy requirements in the form of heat, power, or shaft work during onshore/offshore production, enhanced recovery operation, transportation, processing, and upgrading are mainly provided by fossil-fuel-based conventional technologies. Adaptation of sustainable and eco-friendly renewable energies such as hydropower, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, wind power, biomass, geothermal energy, and wave power in different industries including the oil and gas sector is now globally examined with some successful stories. Renewable hybridization of the conventional oil and gas sector would reduce energy costs as well as greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This chapter investigates recent developments in the integration of renewable energy resources with the oil and gas industry and highlights the prospects.
