YP Unplugged 360 Series Webinar:

Our Role in the Energy Transition

D. Nathan Meehan, Ph.D., P.E., President, CMG Petroleum Consulting. Ltd


The need to decarbonize the oil and gas industry to remain competitive is clear; however, the path forward is not. In the face of investor, government and societal pressures operators and service companies have pursued a variety of paths towards the use of renewables, increased efficiencies and Carbon Capture Use and Storage. Dr. Meehan shares an approach to quantify carbon intensity (CI) of oil and gas activity and presents results showing a wide disparity in CI around the world. He discusses examples ranging from more or less proven CCUS to advances in the use of hydrogen. Ultimately he is concerned about the pace of activity and lack of a consistent set of global standards. Going forward, he predicts company success will be strongly correlated to decarbonization results.

He holds a BSc in Physics from the Georgia Institute of Technology, an MSc in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Oklahoma, and a PhD in Petroleum Engineering from Stanford University.
