The global impact of transformative technologies and markets for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) -- and Mississippi's leading role in EOR implementation -- will be the focus of a March 6 symposium hosted in Jackson, Miss., by Rice University and Mississippi State University. The event will bring together industry leaders, government officials, market analysts and policy experts to explore how EOR is being implemented in Mississippi in conjunction with transformative technology for carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS).
Who: Co-sponsored by Rice's Energy and Environment Initiative and Mississippi State's National Strategic Planning and Analysis Research Center (nSPARC), the event will be headlined by Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant. Speakers and panelists will include Charles McConnell, executive director of Rice's Energy and Environment Initiative and former assistant secretary of energy at the U.S. Department of Energy; Christopher Guith, vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Institute for 21st Century Energy; and Domenico Parisi, director of Mississippi State's nSPARC.
What:"EOR and Global Impacts: Transformative Technology for Energy Security, Global Environment and Sustainability" symposium.
When:Thursday, March 6, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Where:The Windsor III Room, The Jackson Marriott, Jackson, Miss.
Enough oil could be recovered economically with today's EOR technologies to more than double current U.S. proven reserves and significantly increase global reserves, according to Advanced Resources International, a recognized leader in geological research. Mississippi is a leader in the implementation of EOR and CCUS. The symposium will enable international and U.S. state delegations to learn from Mississippi's example as they move toward implementing CCUS business and technology and envision the future through transformation.
Symposium co-hosts include the Institute for 21st Century Energy, the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, the Southern States Energy Board, the North American Carbon Capture and Storage Association and the Mississippi Energy Institute.
