EMLF’s 42nd Annual Institute
June 20 @ 2:00 pm - June 22 @ 4:30 pm EST
Babst Calland joins the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation (EMLF) for its 42nd Annual Institute, June 20-22, 2021.
Attorney Jim Curry will be a co-panelist for “Carbon Capture/Storage.” Many policymakers advocate widespread use of carbon capture and storage (CCS) to help address climate change. Investors are starting to evaluate CCS projects and several states have promulgated CCS regulations or are considering such rules. These developments are important to several segments of the energy industry—oil & gas, coal, and electricity generation. This panel will address:
- When mineral interests have been severed, who has authority to authorize CCS—the surface owner or mineral owner?
- How will CCS projects affect rights and duties of oil and gas lessees?
- What regulations govern CCS and what is happening on the regulatory front?
- What tax incentives exist to incentivize CCS?
- What distinctions do property law, regulations, and tax law make between enhanced oil recovery projects that incidentally sequester carbon and projects for carbon disposal?
