2021 Panelist Profile | Q&A with Kristin
Have you attended The Energy Summit before? As a guest or panelist?
As an enthusiastic guest!
What made you decide to join us at this 33rd Annual Energy Summit conference to participate on this panel, and how they are interpreted?
At CSI our mission is to protect and promote Colorado’s economy. There is no other industry in Colorado that contributes as much in terms of jobs and economic impact to our state than oil & gas. I’m proud to be part of the speaking lineup.
Why do you think your panel topic is critical in the oil and natural gas industry at this time?
Climate change and GHG has been a hot topic lately, especially coming out of the 2021 legislative session. But before policies are developed and enacted it is important to understand the tradeoffs and how to effectively become more sustainable.
