OPENING OPERATOR PANEL – THE STRATEGIC VIEW ON EMISSIONS REDUCTION FOR DIFFERENT SITES  

Operator Perspectives On Best Practices in Managing Onshore Wellsite Facilities and Implementing New Technology For Emissions Reduction For New & Legacy Facilities

Examining multiple solutions for emissions reduction because what works well for one operator at one site may not always be optimal for another producer at a different location. Setting the scene for three days of commercial presentations on specific technical areas, the opening presentations will examine innovative facility management approaches across the board. Speakers will talk about the macro strategies for overcoming emissions-related challenges as well as the economics driving the project outcomes for individual sites.  To talk about what is working, but also to be candid about what hasn’t worked so well & what they would do differently next time.
