Abstract: The growing shift toward "decarbonization" and "net-zero carbon commitments" has investors pressuring energy-intensive industries to develop a climate strategy as part of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) disclosure practices. The new Administration has re-committed the U.S. to the Paris Climate Agreement, and 24 states along with the District of Columbia have established economy-wide GHG emission reduction targets. For oil and gas exploration or production companies, the social and governmental pressures to reduce GHG emissions are driving fundamental changes in project evaluation, financial commitments, and reserves estimation. Financial benefits or emission offsets have energized some operators to explore old and new tertiary recovery opportunities.
In this session we will discuss these key drivers and other pressures influencing companies to develop GHG footprints and metrics, increase transparency in reporting and disclosure practices, and publicly commit to net zero emissions aspirations. The presentation will provide a practical roadmap for quantifying Scope 1, 2, and 3 GHG emissions, benchmarking emissions against peers, and establishing GHG reduction targets.
Bio: Christi Wilson is a Principal Consultant affiliated with Trinity’s Pittsburgh, PA office. A twenty-five year veteran in the environmental field, she has in-depth experience with federal and state air quality permitting and compliance for a variety of energy intensive industry sectors. She has extensive experience with criteria and HAP/toxic air pollutant and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions quantification and inventory development and reporting under state and federal compulsory programs, as well as corporate sustainability and voluntary reduction programs.
In her current role, Ms. Wilson serves as a national subject-matter expert for Trinity’s Oil & Gas business line and as a climate change specialist assisting clients with development of carbon footprints, GHG reduction targets, and sustainability strategies. She has served as the lead instructor for several of Trinity’s national training courses and numerous custom courses, webinars and seminars on a variety of industry topics. She has presented related training topics to a variety of audiences as part of industry trade group conferences, courses for regulatory agency personnel, and for numerous public meetings and hearings on industrial development projects.
Ms. Wilson earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences from M.I.T. in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Since joining D&M in 2011, Mr. Flagg has extensive experience in the evaluation of resources in various geographic regions throughout the world. He has diverse knowledge of onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities design, evaluation, cost management, and scheduling, and he has carried out extensive research into the potential commercialization of floating liquid natural gas (FLNG) in southeast Asia and western Africa.
Some of his most recent projects involved leveraging his chemistry background to assist clients in Australia, Europe, and North America in creating internal greenhouse gas reporting guidelines and requirements in accordance with applicable regulatory environments and in estimating direct and indirect emissions based on the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) or ISO 14064 standards. Flagg has expertise with enhanced oil recovery operations or permanent storage of CO2 to further assisted clients within the United States to further evaluate brownfield options, including maximizing 45Q tax credits.
Prior to joining D&M, he served as a cavalry officer in the United States Army with the 1st Cavalry Division. Flagg graduated with honors from Syracuse University in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in inorganic chemistry. He was named a Vice President at D&M in 2019.
