MC to host "Environmental Regulatory Seminar"

All this week, we'll be sampling the opportunities for growth, advancement - and FUN! - available to the community through Midland College Continuing Education .



Thursday, May 12, 7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
Carrasco Room, Scharbauer Student Center, Midland College

Registration discount available until May 9
for this popular annual seminar

From Rebecca Bell
Dean of Community Relations & Special Events

The Midland College (MC) Petroleum Professional Development Center is once again partnering with the Society of Petroleum Engineers and the Permian Basin Petroleum Association to host the annual Permian Basin Environmental Regulatory Seminar scheduled for Thursday, May 12, 7:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m., on the main MC campus in the Scharbauer Student Center Carrasco Room.

The seminar is held each spring in response to concerns from oil and gas industry professionals who need to keep current with environmental regulatory and policy changes.

This important one-day seminar will focus on regulatory changes from the past year, distilled to highlight changes with actual operational impacts. Important changes to EPA’s policies and approaches will also be presented and explored in terms of real “on the ground” impact to regulated facilities.

MC Petroleum Professional Development Center Director Curtis Helms explained the importance of the seminar, “A current understanding of regulatory changes and fast access to reference materials is important for energy industry professionals. Similarly, maintaining compliance and alerting management to upcoming changes enhances the value of both environmental professionals and environmental departments. Understanding how recent and upcoming changes affect oil and gas operations will allow companies to avoid surprises, proactively manage regulatory compliance and identify organizational risks.”

The keynote luncheon speaker is J. Ross Craft of Approach Resources LLC. Other presentations include speakers from Texas University Lands, U.S. Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Independent Petroleum Association of America, Permian Basin Petroleum Association, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, New Mexico Oil and Gas Association, Bureau of Economic Geology and New Mexico Oil Conservation Division.

A pre-registration discount of $50 is available until May 9. The pre-registration fee for Texas residents is $195 per person; pre-registration fee for those residing in other states is $220 per person.
