2020 Panelist Profile | Q&A with Jamie
Have you attended The Energy Summit before as a guest or panelist?
Yes as both.
What brings you back? – AND/OR - What are you looking forward to at this year’s Energy Summit (aside from your session)?
The COGA Annual Summit is always a highlight of the fall conference schedules.
COGA provides dynamic topics and speakers, as well as practical discussions, on the oil and gas industry’s ever-changing role locally and nationally.
What made you decide to join us at this 32nd Annual Energy Summit conference to participate on this panel, and how they are interpreted?
I was honored to join the “SB19-181 - One Year Later” panel to discuss the benefits and impacts 181 has had on Colorado as a whole. Our firm has been involved with SB 181 since its introduction in March 2019 and we advise operator clients on its mandates daily.
Why do you think your panel topic is critical in the oil and natural gas industry at this time?
I believe that the “SB19-181 - One Year Later” panel is critical to the oil and natural gas industry at this time because, as I type this, we are in the midst of one of the largest COGCC rulemakings Colorado has seen in the past decade. Each new rule is an extension of SB 181’s mandates and the outcome will impact each and every operator, local government, citizen and agency.
How would you recommend that someone stays current on these issues if they are interested or want to know more?
Reach out to COGA leadership, visit the COGA website for the fast facts write-ups, or reach out to the panelist and/or experts on the current matters and have a discussion.
What is your personal favorite story about, or characteristic of the Colorado oil and natural gas community and those who work in it?
My favorite aspect of the Colorado oil and natural gas industry and those who work in it is the “never give up” strength, attitude and character.
Any great books or binge-worthy shows to recommend?
Billions on Showtime. I cannot get enough.
