Oil & Gas regulations are ever changing. This webinar takes you through an in-depth discussion on incentive programs available to Oil and Gas Producers, reviews strategies for Carbon Emission Reductions and provides a high level overview of some of the tools and documents we have developed to navigate air emissions regulations for the industry.

In addition to ERF, MTIP, BROA and energy savings, the webinar covers a high level overview on how carbon credits interact with some of the programs, details of the application processes to access funding and sample results to date.
