May 3, 2017


Lunch with speaker Dennis McConaghy, retired Executive Vice-President, Corporate Development at TransCanada
on Is There Life After Keystone?

at Calgary Petroleum Club, Cardium Room
319 - 5 Ave SW, Calgary

As the author of “Dysfunction: Canada after Keystone XL,” Dennis believes a carbon tax should have been pursued more publicly and with greater conviction years ago, to convince President Obama to approve Keystone XL. His book examines the history of the project, its impacts in Canada - whether the project is realized or not - and the choices the country now faces in rationalizing its hydrocarbon potential and credible carbon policy.

A chemical engineer with degrees from the University of Alberta, Dennis McConaghy joined TransCanada in 1998, and has held senior positions in Corporate Strategy & Development, Midstream/Divestments, and Business Development. He has more than 25 years experience in oil and gas, including responsibility for Keystone XL.

Dennis will have copies of his book available for purchase at the luncheon for $25, cash.

Lunch: Gourmet mac 'n' cheese, chicken fingers, cookies, coffee
