Abstract
Sustainability? Climate Change? Normally the oil and gas industry is cast as culprits rather than contributors and no technology is more of a lightning rod for the ire of industry opponents than “fracking.” In this talk 2016 SPE President Nathan Meehan talks about innovation, sustainability and the role of the industry including a series of areas where industry and its detractors should agree. These areas all have potential for technological advances. Meehan also illustrates the role of innovative solutions in overcoming low product prices.
