Carbon Capture and Sequestration Developments - McDermott

IEL Conference on Renewable Project Development: Carbon Capture and Sequestration Developments


Carbon capture, improved energy efficiency and increasing use of noncarbon energy sources are the three primary means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, all of which will be necessary to meet established emission reduction targets. Oil and gas companies are leveraging their experience with conventional energy operations to lead the development of carbon capture and storage solutions and infrastructure. The panel will discuss current trends in carbon capture and sequestration project development, including critical considerations for developers and sponsors.

This conference will explore the legal and business trends and issues facing the growing renewables sector of the energy industry. The conference will focus on renewable project development and is designed primarily for attorneys and legal consultants representing the energy industry. This conference will be presented in a hybrid format. Although primarily designed for those attending the conference in-person, the conference is also available to view live online.
