Frontier Energy Series: New Advancements in Oil and Gas Drilling Technologies
The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host Greg Powers, Vice President of Technology at Halliburton, to discuss new and novel technology advancements and ongoing investments being made in the oil and gas business. Sarah Ladislaw, Director and Senior Fellow in the CSIS Energy and National Security Program, will moderate.
Innovation and technological development, key elements of North America’s competitive advantage, are closely intertwined with economic growth. In no sector is this perhaps more evident than the energy sector. The ability to improve upon existing technologies, apply technologies in new ways in different places, find ways to produce new resources and types of energy, and change the way we use energy is a central part of what shapes global energy markets. Even beyond economic competitiveness, energy innovation is directly connected to national security interests and environmental concerns.
This will be the first session in the CSIS Energy and National Security Program’s new Frontier Energy Series which explores innovations on the edge of mainstream adoption, with a focus on technological breakthroughs and new opportunities that could revolutionize the energy landscape.
