I first became immersed in the environmental field through an internship in the oil and gas industry, where I evaluated greenhouse gas emission reduction technologies (considered novel at the time), including technologies promoted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Since then I have come full circle, supporting EPA in promoting GHG mitigation technologies and analyzing reductions in oil and gas industry GHG emissions.
Brandon Long, a senior chemical engineer in ERG’s Morrisville office, leads ERG’s efforts to evaluate and estimate greenhouse gas emissions from the oil and gas industry. For the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, he develops methodologies to estimate total U.S. oil and gas industry GHG emissions over time so that EPA and other entities can track emissions and industry efforts to reduce those emissions. Brandon also developed a GHG emissions inventory for the oil and gas industry in New Mexico, a first-of-its-kind effort for the state. He also supports EPA in describing and promoting technologies for use by the oil and gas industry in mitigating GHG emissions from their operations.
Brandon holds a B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Wyoming and an M.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Kansas. He enjoys camping and attempting to stay in shape by playing with his kids.
