Please join Orphan & Idle Wells Colorado and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Payne Institute Sustainable Finance Lab Program Manager Brad Handler, presenting Carbon Credits, Registries, and Markets: A Comprehensive Guide for the Energy Industry on Wednesday, March 6, 2024, in Denver, CO.  

OVERVIEW:

Join us at the Orphan & Idle Wells Colorado Conference 2024, where we continue to confront the critical environmental, logistical, and financial challenges posed by over 3.7 million abandoned oil and gas wells, including approximately 130,000 orphan wells. These wells, lacking responsible ownership, pose severe risks by leaking oil and toxic chemicals, endangering water sources, contributing to air pollution, and emitting methane, causing environmental hazards and economic burdens on communities and governments.

Under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), significant steps have been taken with a US$4.7bn fund to address the environmental impacts of these wells. In synergy with the DOE’s Undocumented Orphaned Well Program, these efforts aim at ecological restoration, economic growth, and job creation. This event is an extension of our well-received Orphan and Idle Wells series, launched in Texas in October 2023 and successfully started a much-needed dialogue on decarbonizing oil and gas operations in the Lone Star State.

WHY COLORADO?

We chose Colorado because of its position as a leader in oil and gas regulation, industry best practices, and CCUS and geothermal technologies. This pivotal conference will delve into the complexities surrounding orphan wells and 20,000 low-producing wells that are at risk of becoming orphan wells in Colorado. We are excited to feature a speaker faculty of esteemed subject matter experts from state and federal agencies, leading energy companies, academia, and experts in well decommissioning and monitoring.

The event will spotlight initiatives and updates on:

Financial Strategies for Well Abandonment and CCUS
Environmental Compliance and Sustainable Practices
Technological Advancements in Well Plugging and Remediation
Stakeholder Collaboration and Engagement at the federal, state and industry level
Community and Public Health Priorities
CCUS Integration for Carbon-Neutral Assets
Data-Driven Decision-Making
Regulatory Frameworks and Policy Advocacy
Balancing Financial, Environmental, and Community Goals
Innovation and Sustainability in the Energy Industry

The Orphan & Idle Wells Colorado Conference is your opportunity to be at the forefront of this critical environmental and economic challenge. For more information please contact Zia Durrani on zia.durrani@energyconferencenetwork.com.
