Traditional Energy in the Energy Transition

Energy Series Background Decorative image

It is becoming increasingly clear that “traditional” energy companies will play a critical role in the evolving energy transition.

In this presentation, we will survey efforts by E&P and midstream companies in reducing the carbon footprint of their existing operations, as well as entry into new business lines, particularly carbon capture and storage, hydrogen, renewable natural gas and biofuels and offshore wind. These investments are expected to be particularly well suited to traditional energy companies given their decades of experience in large-scale engineering and project management, ownership of existing infrastructure and real property rights which are impossible to replicate as well as skilled finance and operational personnel.

We will be joined by Jeff Hume, Vice Chairman of Strategic Growth Initiatives with Continental Resources as well as Robert Purgason, Managing Director of EnLink Midstream’s Carbon Solutions Group to discuss their recently announced initiatives in carbon capture and storage.
