This webinar precedes the Canadian Gas Dialogues Conference, to be held in Calgary on September 29, 2021. Shannon Joseph (CAPP), Paul Cheliak (CGA) and Jim Campbell (CEPA), moderated by Julie Gaudreau (IGRC 2024) discuss the state of innovation in the natural gas industry during this discussion that touches upon the following topics: - What can the upstream/midstream and downstream do to collaborate and drive further natural gas innovation? What specific markets holds the most opportunity (residential, industry, LNG export, etc?). - What is the single biggest barrier to natural gas innovation and what is the top solution? - Have net zero emission reduction targets changed the scope and nature of the innovation investments across the gas value chain?
