CH4 Connections
Tuesday, September 23, 2014
the Lone Star Corporate College training facility in The Woodlands, Texas

Methane emissions has emerged as an increasingly important topic to be addressed by the natural gas industry.  Environmental advocates and regulators are considering new rules to mitigate the impact of methane releases from the daily operations of the industry.  Are new rules needed?  What methods and tools are available for methane emissions mitigation?  What direction are policy makers going with respect to regulating the industry?  Are there any accurate ways to measure methane emissions or their impact?

Gas Technology Institute (GTI) and Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC) are hosting a methane emissions conference (CH4 Connections) at the Lone Star Corporate College training facility in The Woodlands, Texas, 40 miles north of downtown Houston (25 miles from Bush International Airport).  There will be a variety of speakers representing gas producers, transmission pipelines, and gas distributors, plus representatives from the U.S. DOE, EPA,  state agencies, and academia who will be discussing policy, environmental issues, and technical challenges regarding measuring, mitigating, and weighing the impact of methane emissions in the oil and gas industry.

Please join us by clicking on www.gastechnology.org/ch4 .  Use the code APGA when registering and you will receive a $100 discount on your CH4 registration. You can also contact Danielle Swanson at 847 768 0500. 

Find the solutions you need at CH4 Connections, the premier methane emissions event for the natural gas world. CH4 Connections speakers include utility leaders in leak detection and mitigation such as National Grid and the Southern California Gas Company; EPA policymakers; and representatives from natural gas organizations AGA, NGSA, and INGAA.

Jointly sponsored by the Gas Technology Institute (GTI) and the Houston Advanced Research Center (HARC), CH4 Connections will provide a forum for these diverse interests to discuss upcoming policy decisions, the newest detection and mitigation programs and techniques in the US, and how different facets of the community can benefit from sharing knowledge and experience with others.
