Net Zero Carbon Series: Reducing GHG Emissions in the Oil and Gas Sector

Tue., Mar. 10, 2020 1:30 p.m. - Tue., Mar. 10, 2020 3:00 p.m.

Location: College Avenue -CB 308-

This discussion series, hosted by the Centre for the Study of Science and Innovation Policy, will contribute to addressing the gap between current efforts and those needed to stabilize and potentially reduce GHG emissions.

Saskatchewan is well-positioned to identify the pathway(s) to a low carbon future. It is a province that is fossil fuel dependent, the site of the first commercial-scale post-combustion carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) power plant, and home to some of the world's largest uranium deposits. Although the oil and gas industry of Saskatchewan will be impacted by future climate change policy and regulation, projections of global demand for oil and gas continue into the future. Envisioning and responding to this future through a provincial business strategy is timely.

Panelist include:
Dan MacLean, CEO and President, Petroleum Technology Research Centre
James Baker, President, JP Baker Management Inc.
Corwyn Bruce, Vice-President of Technical Services, International CCS Knowledge Centre
