Moving Oil & Gas to Markets: Pipeline politics & finance

Tuesday, March 10

11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Oil & gas companies will continue to need pipelines to move product to market to facilitate growth. However, climate change has become a defining factor in companies’ long-term prospects, and across the globe, more companies are grappling with investor demands to be more socially responsible. In North America, where exports of oil and natural gas have dramatically increased in recent years, pipeline companies have provided a critical role in developing the infrastructure needed to accommodate this growth. How are pipeline companies responding to investor demands? Are they preparing for an energy transition? Is it getting harder to finance projects?
