Bill Bray, formerly at ExxonMobil, will give a presentation on the Oil, Gas and PetroChem industries in Texas and how the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act will impact them. The Energy Transition with a predictably rising price on carbon will certainly drive change, but these industries can and will handle these changes and continue contributing to our vibrant economy. Bill started The Woodlands Chapter in 2015, has been a Co-Lead of Team Oil and CCL’s Liaison to ExxonMobil, and is currently the Presbyterian Action Team Lead.

EVENT FORMAT:
Our presenter will speak for 15 to 20 minutes, then we’ll have an informal Q&A session and discussion for the remainder of the event. This event is held online on Zoom.
