Shale Insight 2022

September 27 @ 11:30 am - September 29 @ 2:15 pm

Babst Calland joins the Marcellus Shale Coalition for Shale Insight 2022, September 27-29, 2022. Shale Insight offers participants unprecedented interaction with industry-leading CEOs, elected officials and thought leaders, all of whom play a critical role in crafting the public policy and technical landscape that defines shale gas development around the world. Insightful technical and public affairs sessions, national keynote addresses, and networking receptions will provide attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors unique access to the industry’s most influential leaders and innovators.

Attorneys Jim Curry and Kevin Garber will co-present “The Latest Hydrogen and CCS Developments and What They Mean for the Natural Gas Industry.” Hydrogen and carbon capture and sequestration have emerged as a potential solution to address unprecedented decarbonization demands from investors, customers and governments. The U.S. Department of Energy will soon be reviewing applications and awarding grants for regional Hydrogen Hubs, perhaps including one in Appalachia, while private industry continues to actively explore the generation of hydrogen and its use for industrial, transportation and other uses. Sequestering the carbon is a key component to the development and deployment of hydrogen as an energy source, particularly in our region. This session will provide the latest developments on the status of IIJA review and funding of hydrogen hubs, the generation of hydrogen and the market for off-takers, CO2 and hydrogen pipeline regulation and permitting, and primacy for UIC permitting of injection wells.

Attorney Keith Coyle will be the moderator and Senior Director of Safety Chris Hoidal will be a co-panelist for “Pipeline Safety in the Biden Administration.” The Biden administration has issued several significant pipeline safety rules since coming to office in January 2021, including new safety standards and reporting requirements for onshore gas gathering lines, as well as new valve installation and rupture detection standards for gas, hazardous liquid, and carbon dioxide pipelines. The Administration is also developing new rulemaking proposals to establish enhanced leak detection and repair requirements for gas pipelines and address other congressional mandates. These new rulemakings, along with the Administration’s focus on environmental issues, have impacted the regulatory landscape and policy priorities of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), the federal agency charged with administering the nation’s pipeline safety program. This session will cover recent developments in pipeline safety and discuss the potential challenges and opportunities that operators can expect during the Biden administration.
