100 Years of Science
Fueling 100 Years of Prosperity

This forum addresses practical aspects of how the fossil fuel industry should operate in the coming decades based on two key assumptions/ goals. First, availability to energy increases prosperity and well-being of the population as a whole and our industry should strive to furnish it. The second is that policies that restrict any manner of alteration to local or global environments are likely to become more prevalent as technology allows both more detailed measurements and various media allow dissemination of both information and disinformation.

Aspects to be addressed are among the following:

  • What regulatory or economic incentives (e.g., a tax on carbon) would be best for our industry to allow it to both supply the needed energy and to be seen as a positive, creative industry by the public?
  • How should the energy industry prepare its infrastructure for the managing risk better, be it in hazardous environments, in response to weather related accidents, aggradation of cumulative effects, etc.
  • How can our industry better transfer knowledge and best practices between generations and from where will we develop the next generation of skill workers?
  • How do corporations and regulators “bake in” Best Practices for technologies and plays that have not even been imagined.
  • Finally, how can we change public perceptions to view the fossil fuel industry as part of the solution and not just the problem?
