Upcoming Meetings


Sustainable Oil & Gas Development is a broad scope—within which we focus mainly on issues of climate action, affordable clean energy, clean water, waste reduction, and community engagement. For a good map of how our industry supports Sustainable Development, see IPEACA’s report on Mapping the oil and gas industry to the Sustainable Development Goals.


A few topics in our queue that we are working to deliver in upcoming meetings:

  • Carbon Capture, Use and Storage (CCUS) potential in Calif
  • Repurposing abandoned infrastructure for geothermal and/or gas storage
  • Offshore decommissioning
  • Methane emissions monitoring via aerial or satellite imaging.
  • Community engagement and trust
  • New regulatory initiatives and programs
  • Renewable energy use within field operations
