Cutting Methane in the Oil and Gas Sector: Progress and Prospects
It's been nearly a year since the Global Methane Pledge at COP26 marked the arrival of the "methane moment" -- and a great deal has happened since then. Please join us for a conversation with Ben Cahill, Senior Fellow at CSIS, who has been a leading analyst on the topic. We will focus on key US policy and regulatory developments aimed at better quantifying and reducing methane emissions -- as well as oil and gas industry responses. The discussion will be moderated by TJ Conway, Vice President of NCAC-USAEE, and Principal at RMI.
Ben Cahill is a senior fellow in the Energy Security and Climate Change Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). He covers oil markets, geopolitics, and macro trends affecting the oil and gas industry. He also leads a research initiative on methane emissions and global gas and analyzes how national oil companies are responding to the energy transition. Ben was previously a director in Energy Intelligence's Research & Advisory group and led its country risk practice, advising oil and gas companies on politics, economics, and policy risks. He also wrote on corporate strategy and covered Saudi Aramco, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, and the Southeast Asian national oil companies. Ben formerly worked at PFC Energy (now part of IHS Markit) in Washington, D.C., and Kuala Lumpur, focusing on country risk and macro trends in the oil and gas industry. He has an MA in international affairs and economics from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies and a BA in international relations and English from Boston University.
