About this Event

The University Of Houston’s Center for Carbon Management in Energy (CCME) is delighted to announce an upcoming webinar series beginning Thursday, April 2nd, 2020 to address a number of key topical areas and issues facing the energy industry. Carbon management has been identified as a key necessity for the energy transition and for real sustainability for our future. The CCME holds a strategic anchor belief that “true” sustainability requires that the energy produced and consumed must be not only environmentally responsible but also reliable and affordable as well. Carbon Management has any number of strategic thrusts be they engineering and science, business, legal, policy and regulatory impact.

We will explore a series of issues that face carbon management strategies in terms of geopolitics, project development, legal frameworks and any number of challenges and opportunities facing the energy marketplace. The recent global pandemic will surely impact short and longer term actions – as will the global economic conditions we face. Join us and our world leading subject matter experts from both the University of Houston and the marketplace.

We hope you will join us every Thursday for the coming months for insights and perspectives from leaders in carbon management.

CCUS and the 45Q IRS Guidance – What We Know Now and What Remains?

David Lowman, Partner, Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP

The topic of CCUS has been of key marketplace interest over the past few years and this has culminated with the recent release of the NPC Study “The Dual Challenge.” The road-map of at-scale deployment of CCUS has a number of challenges and opportunities, but of prime interest and clarity to enable investment is the updated IRS guidance on 45Q.

Comments were solicited this past summer and the IRS has released a series of updated and clarified rulings that we will review and discuss in this Webinar presentation by the CCME. The Webinar will feature subject matter expert, David Lowman, Partner at Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP. The presentation will be followed by a live Q&A.

The Sea Change in Energy Globally – The Headwinds We Face And The Tailwinds We Hope For

John Hofmeister, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Citizens for Affordable Energy; Past President, Shell Oil Company

With the remarkable change in the geopolitical landscape of the past month, what can we expect to experience? Economic demand destruction, capital markets shrinking, growth and economic forecasts that have been dramatically reduced, will disrupt the landscape. The impacts to issues such as climate change and carbon management and declarations by industry and governments will be viewed through a new lens. The fundamentals of globalization will be challenged. But all is not lost as radical change has always created opportunity through new perspectives. The presentation will be followed by a live Q&A.
