The Great Plains Institute’s Matt Fry will speak about the Wyoming Pipeline Corridor Initiative (WPCI) during a webinar Wednesday, Jan. 19, at 1:30 p.m.

The event is part of the continuing Wyoming Oil and Gas Fair Virtual Series organized by the University of Wyoming’s Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI). To register for the free online event, go to www.eoriwyoming.org/oil-gas-fair/registration-information.

Now in its 25th year, Wyoming’s Oil and Gas Fair has brought industry leaders together to promote the very best in the oil and gas industry in Wyoming. As the event organizer, EORI’s goal this year is to offer Wyoming’s oil and gas industry a premier virtual conference event.

The Jan. 19 webinar will focus on WPCI, which established corridors on public lands dedicated to future use of pipelines associated with carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS); enhanced oil recovery; and delivery of associated petroleum products.

Fry is the state and regional policy manager, supporting the carbon management program, at the Great Plains Institute. He has over 20 years of experience in natural resource management, regulation and policy in both the public and private sectors. He served as a senior policy adviser to former Gov. Matt Mead, focused on natural resources, energy and CCUS policy.

He developed and managed WPCI, a project that culminated with a federal authorization for a statewide pipeline corridor system in Wyoming intended to facilitate development of carbon dioxide pipeline infrastructure and incentivize CCUS project deployment.

Fry earned a Bachelor of Science in biology and chemistry from Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, W.Va., and a master’s degree in natural resource law from the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law.

Wyoming’s Oil and Gas Fair commits to educate, engage and mobilize industry and state leadership to help identify problems and solutions to blaze a path forward and actively shape Wyoming’s energy future.

The Great Plains Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that takes a pragmatic approach to energy and climate change challenges to benefit the economy and the environment.
