Event Overview

As a hydrocarbon, natural gas consists primarily of methane and a host of additional hydrocarbons such as ethane, propane, butane, pentane, and higher hydrocarbons.

In modern day consumption, our world would be negatively impacted by loss of our versatile use and necessity of natural gas as an energy technology.
In this one and half hour session, Bill Cantrell dissects the realities of how we think about our energy — from history, evolution, and innovation to a forward-facing and positive future.
