Broad Perspective on Methane Emissions Offered at CH4 Connections Conference
8/28/14 Des Plaines, IL
With methane emissions an increasingly important topic to be addressed, Gas Technology Institute (GTI), a leading natural gas research, development, and training organization, and Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC), a research hub providing independent analysis on energy, air, and water issues, have established the CH4 Connections Conference, aimed at collaborative solutions for the natural gas community. It will provide a forum for diverse interests to explore the latest advancements in emissions reduction and help pave the way for future innovations. Presenters will discuss upcoming policy decisions, the newest detection and mitigation programs and techniques, and how different facets of the community can benefit from sharing knowledge and experience with others.
The conference will take place at the Lone Star Corporate College Community Building and Conference Center in The Woodlands, Texas (30 minutes from Bush International Airport) on September 23-24, 2013. Panel and plenary sessions will cover topics such as the gas industry’s perspective on methane emissions, social aspects of natural gas production and distribution, EPA initiatives to reduce natural gas emissions through voluntary programs, and quantification of methane emissions.
Leading-edge technologies and solutions to measure and address methane emissions will be showcased at the event. A reception will offer refreshments in the Exhibition area and an opportunity to continue the conversation with industry colleagues. Through communication and collaboration, ideas can be shared and implemented, processes can be improved, and this challenge can be met and overcome.
Participants will engage with various stakeholders as they gain a broad perspective on the issues surrounding methane emissions. There will be a variety of speakers representing gas producers, transmission pipelines, and gas distributors, plus representatives from the U.S. DOE, EPA, state agencies, and academia who will be discussing policy, environmental issues, and technical challenges regarding measuring, mitigating, and weighing the impact of methane emissions in the oil and gas industry.
