Symposium Objective and Purpose
In this Symposium, the LSU Journal of Energy Law and Resources will discuss the future of carbon capture and sequestration laws and regulations as they relate to mineral extraction and environmental litigation. Specifically, the Symposium will address four main legal issues:
- How federal and state regulatory schemes affect the carbon capture process;
- Tax incentives and issues relating to carbon capture and sequestration;
- Carbon capture and sequestrations’ effect on oil and gas leases, servitudes, and pipelines; and
- How Louisiana’s regulatory and environmental scheme is set up to handle carbon capture and sequestration in the future.
The Symposium features renowned scholars and attorneys, including Patrick Ottinger, Patrick Martin, Michael Brassett, John Lehrer, Blake Canfield, Poe Leggette, Melissa Baustian, David Dismukes, Hunter Johnston, and Keith Hall. Additionally, professors from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center will moderate these panels and assist in addressing these issues.
