2020 IGUA Spring Seminar

The Flashpoint Where Energy, the Environment
and Large Industry Meet


Canada continues to struggle with reconciling the economic realities of a resource-based economy with the need to curb carbon emissions. The 2020 Spring Seminar provides a timely platform to examine the emerging dynamic between gas markets and climate regulation, and the impact of carbon liability on industrial investment. The Seminar will examine the challenges facing energy intensive, and trade exposed industries as well as the opportunities for continued success in a carbon-constrained future.

Chantal Hebert will set the scene with a key note presentation the political reality of energy and climate in Canada. Utilities and pipeline representatives will discuss the latest developments in gas infrastructure with energy consumers, producers and marketers. Legal experts will highlight developments that could significantly impact energy development. Program details will follow in the new year.

Participation is by invitation only to keep the event small and conducive to a productive exchange among the key natural gas stakeholders (users, pipelines and utilities, marketers, regulators, and policy makers). Please come prepared to engage in a productive dialogue with your peers.
