Methane Mitigation, Start with the Question!
Sponsored by ChampionX

Everyone seeks the silver bullet, a singular device capable of solving difficult problems. While methane mitigation is no easy feat, there are numerous providers who will suggest their widget is indeed the silver bullet. They claim the one and only technology will solve your methane problems. Unfortunately, that technology does not exist.
Satellites only see large leaks on clear days, OGI cameras require operators to visit the site making them cost prohibitive for catching leaks early. Continuous monitors can’t pinpoint the source. Although modest reductions are achievable with any device, maximizing the methane abated versus cost involves knowing how available tools fit together into a holistic methane reduction package.
This presentation will show existing detection options: planes, helicopters, drones, satellites, OGI cameras, and continuous monitoring and consider how to deploy these technologies in a way which achieves maximum benefit for the minimum cost. Finally, how can you construct a methane detection system that will answer your specific questions.

The Latest Hydrogen and CCS Developments and What They Mean for the Natural Gas Industry
Sponsored by Babst Calland

Hydrogen and carbon capture and sequestration have emerged as a potential solution to address unprecedented decarbonization demands from investors, customers and governments. The U.S. Department of Energy will soon be reviewing applications and awarding grants for regional Hydrogen Hubs, perhaps including one in Appalachia, while private industry continues to actively explore the generation of hydrogen and its use for industrial, transportation and other uses. Sequestering the carbon is a key component to the development and deployment of hydrogen as an energy source, particularly in our region. This session will provide the latest developments on the status of IIJA review and funding of hydrogen hubs, the generation of hydrogen and the market for off-takers, CO2 and hydrogen pipeline regulation and permitting, and primacy for UIC permitting of injection wells.

Carbon Sequestration and the Path to Commercialization
Sponsored by WSP Golder

Underground Injection Control (UIC) wells are designed to inject, dispose, and store injectates in the subsurface. Established methods to permit, design, operate, and monitor UIC wells have established a safe disposal and storage alternative for industry. To meet net-zero goals, these methods can be successfully implemented to insure the safe and secure long-term disposal through carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). The most successful projects will have to navigate and satisfy geologic feasibility, regulatory requirements, and commercial requisites. Geologic criteria include: (1) adequate upper confinement to protect the lowermost Underground Source of Drinking Water (USDW); (2) sufficient storage capacity to sequester the anticipated volume of CO2; and (3) identification and assessment of vertical migration pathways that could compromise permanent storage and potentially threaten the USDW. With geologic requirements satisfied, a stable regulatory framework can be established with advanced efforts to understand the local and state readiness along with early coordination with regulators and stakeholders. These pieces feed into the ever-evolving landscape of policy incentives and advancement of capture technology, making commercialization opportunities available for sustainable CCS programs.

Transferred Emissions: New Pressures in the Energy Sector
Sponsored by Geosyntec Consultants, Inc.

For the oil and gas industry, the energy transition, ESG investing, and turbulent commodity prices have pushed and pulled business strategy over the past 5 years. Early on, companies eager to meet the energy transition expectations of their shareholders used divestment as a tool to rapidly decarbonize their asset portfolio. More recently, this concept of M&A activity as a way to meet corporate climate targets has caught the attention of investors and ENGOs/NGOs. As it has become apparent that transferred emissions may hamper macro energy transition goals, companies’ strategies need to evolve. In this session, the concept of transferred emissions will be covered broadly and we will offer actionable ways to build effective and credible tools.

Pipeline Safety in the Biden Administration
Sponsored by Babst Calland

The Biden Administration has issued several significant pipeline safety rules since coming to office in January 2021, including new safety standards and reporting requirements for onshore gas gathering lines, as well as new valve installation and rupture detection standards for gas, hazardous liquid, and carbon dioxide pipelines. The Administration is also developing new rulemaking proposals to establish enhanced leak detection and repair requirements for gas pipelines and address other congressional mandates. These new rulemakings, along with the Administration’s focus on environmental issues, have impacted the regulatory landscape and policy priorities of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), the federal agency charged with administering the nation’s pipeline safety program. This session will cover recent developments in pipeline safety and discuss the potential challenges and opportunities that operators can expect during the Biden Administration.
