The Osage Minerals Council is once again hosting an Oil & Gas Summit and this year’s theme is “Empowering our Energy through Innovation.”
“The past two years, we have felt the global highs and lows of oil and gas,” said Everett Waller, chairman of the OMC. “I commend the producer, as well as our Council who had to weather the storm. I’m looking forward to each and every one of us getting back together to share our thoughts and ideas to preserve the future on our Osage Reservation.”
The summit will take place at the Osage Casino & Hotel in Tulsa on April 13-15 and staff will be accepting pre-registration and on-site registration. The Summit Agenda includes presentations on advancing hydrogen energy, production optimization, petroleum exploration, state mapping, an update on oil production operators on the Osage, regulatory changes impacting natural gas transportation, grant reporting and remarks from Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear, Waller and Councilwoman Margo Gray.
According to a prepared release, Geologist Shane Matson, Director of New Earth Ventures, will be a featured speaker, the topic will be Understanding the Past to Explore the Future. The banquet speaker will be Matt Newman and he will give a presentation about Oklahoma’s latest hydrogen study—Hydrogen Production, Infrastructure and Production Task Force Report and Roadmap. Oklahoma State University’s Geology Department Head Dr. Camelia Knapp will speak about carbon capture and storage. Additionally, speakers will also be featured from the University of Oklahoma and the University of Tulsa.
The OMC has hosted an Oil & Gas Summit for the past 19 years, with the exception of the years 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“As we emerge out of the pandemic, we are also looking at more innovative ways to produce and monetize our Mineral Estate such as our hydrogen study, carbon capture, CO2 sequestration, and more which will provide greater areas for profit,” Gray said. “The oil and gas market has changed so much over the past two years, it’s a perfect and exciting time for us to get together and discuss the future for the Osage.”
