PAT OTTINGER PRESENTS AT SYMPOSIUM ON CARBON CAPTURE AND SEQUESTRATION
Pat Ottinger participated on a Panel at a Symposium sponsored by the LSU Journal of Energy Law and Resources, entitled “Pollution Solutions: A Symposium on Carbon Capture and Sequestration.” The Symposium was presented virtually via Zoom on February 5, 2021.
The Panel was composed of Professor Keith B. Hall of the LSU Law Center, Professor Emeritus Patrick H. Martin, former LSU Law Center Professor and former State of Louisiana Commissioner of Conservation, and Mr. Ottinger, who is an Adjunct Professor of Law at the LSU Law Center and a long-time Louisiana energy law practitioner. The Panel discussed the effect of carbon capture and sequestration on mineral leases, mineral servitudes and pipelines in Louisiana. Mr. Ottinger’s portion involved the issues of responsibility for costs incurred in an EOR project, and whether the Louisiana Supreme Court decision in Frey v. Amoco required a lessee to share economic benefits with its lessors.
Carbon Capture and Sequestration is in the forefront of efforts to control or minimize the release of greenhouse gasses. Ottinger Hebert has experience in renewable energy projects, including wind and solar leases and developments.
