Enhancing Emergency Preparedness for Natural Disasters

Past Event

March 4, 2015

12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a presentation and discussion of the National Petroleum Council (NPC) study, Enhancing Emergency Preparedness for Natural Disasters. Ms. Peggy Montana, CEO and President, Shell Midstream Partners, LP, will present the report’s key findings and recommendations. After her remarks, Bob Hallman, CGEP Fellow and former Deputy Secretary for Energy and the Environment for New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, will provide his thoughts and reactions.

The NPC study focuses on government and oil and natural gas industry actions to prepare, respond, and recover from energy system disruptions, including how to improve communication and coordination between the Federal government and industry. The study also recommends enhanced engagement between states and the oil and gas industry, for example, in energy planning as well as comprehensive drill and exercise programs.

Center Director Jason Bordoff will moderate the discussion following the presentation.

Registration is required for in-person attendance. This event is open to press. It will also be livestreamed at: energypolicy.columbia.edu/watch (no registration is required to view the livestream).

A podcast of this event (in addition to other past Center events) will be available ~3 to 5 days after the date of the event through iTunes or via our website.

*** The NPC study, Enhancing Emergency Preparedness for Natural Disasters, was prepared in response to a request from U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz for advice on natural gas and oil infrastructure resilience, the importance of which was underscored by Hurricane Sandy and other recent natural disasters. The purpose of the NPC is solely to advise, inform, and make recommendations to the Secretary of Energy on any matter requested by the Secretary relating to oil and natural gas or the oil and gas industries.
