Call for Session/Presentation Abstracts

The 2017 Oil and Gas Environmental Conference Advisory Board is pleased to invite you and your organization to propose a presentation for the 2017 Conference, which will be held at the Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria hotel on Tuesday, November 28 - Wednesday, November 29, 2017.

The 2017 Oil and Gas Environmental Conference is designed to complement our very successful OSHA Oil & Gas Safety and Health Conference. It is a completely different conference with an environmental focus. We are expecting up to 450 attendees at the event. The mission of the conference is to improve environmental performance in the Oil and Gas Industry through cooperative educational programming provided by Oil and Gas Industry leaders, Environmental stakeholders, and Government and Regulatory Agency representatives. The goal of the conference is to build a productive and collaborative relationship between the Oil and Gas Industry and Regulatory Agencies through the sharing of best practices.

The proposed session should cover topics, emerging and current issues, best practices, theoretical/practical applications in industry, regulatory issues and/or other pertinent and pressing subjects as they relate to at least one of the Conference Breakout Session Topics listed below:

· Air/climate change (e.g., federal and state regulations, permitting, air emission control technology, methane emissions, company policies, air emission databases, etc.)

· Water (e.g., water sourcing, produced water injection, discharge, treatment, permitting, storm water runoff controls, etc.)

· Risk Management (e.g., spill management, waste management, remediation technologies, waste testing, etc.)

· Land (e.g., project planning considering endangered species, land use, agency negotiations, etc.)

· Legal (e.g., citizen’s suits, legal risk management, risk management through insurance, regulatory horizon, etc.)

· Other Environmental Topics (e.g., public health, corporate environmental policies, environmental contractor management, environmental professional staffing, etc.)

Safety related abstracts will not be considered for this environmental conference.  Safety related abstracts should be submitted into the 2018 OSHA Oil & Gas Safety and Health Conference abstract portal once it opens in 2018.

This conference is being held in partnership with The University of Texas at Arlington, Environmental Training Institute.
