Oct. 13 Lunch ‘n Learn: Community Consensus for Oil & Gas Operations Globally – More than a Social License to Operate

Download the Presentation

In a world with a growing need for energy, there is wide acceptance that access to energy improves the quality of people’s lives and enables the economic prosperity and growth of countries. At a local level, particularly in areas with proximity to energy exploration and production, this acceptance is neither automatic nor unconditional.
In this Lunch’n Learn presentation, Mr. Darcy Spady, Managing Director of Broadview Asset Management and 2018 Society of Petroleum Engineers President, will address the importance of getting community acceptance and “buy-in” for local oil and gas operations and projects.
Although most predictions and energy outlooks agree that oil and gas will remain the key sources of energy for many decades to come, support for oil and gas activities in our communities is not a given. How can we achieve community consensus as an industry or as individual companies? What are the differences between community consensus and a Social Licence to operate?
Mr. Spady will address these issues, including case studies and examples of how this can be done. Darcy Spady will also address the implications for the industry moving forward in this new reality.

2018 SPE President Darcy Spady, is the Managing Director of Broadview Energy Asset Management, a subsidiary of a private, independent oil and gas producer in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada.
