About the event

Presentation Information:

In a climate-conscious world, ESG performance matters more than ever. The trusted, independent analysis of best-in-class operations and ESG metrics, enhances client portfolio management strategy. This presentation will cover topics related to key items to review in companies' ESG reports and GHG disclosures, emissions intensity studies, and decommissioning plans and cost estimates.

Speaker Bio: 

Mr. Bate is the Managing Partner of EP Valuation. EP Valuation provides due diligence services to investors, sponsors, and financial clients in the Upstream, Midstream, and Power sectors. As part of appraisals, the company is developing standards for evaluating energy companies based on ESG factors. With more than 22 years of combined experience in banking and engineering, he is recognized in the field of reserve valuations.

In his early career, Mr. Bate worked for SLB (previously Schlumberger). Afterward, he earned an MBA degree at the Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas. Following graduate school, Mr. Bate joined Remington Oil and Gas Corp., where he planned and executed engineering projects both onshore and offshore. He was an integral part of the core team that grew the business from a few assets to a $1.4 billion enterprise. Helix Energy Solutions Group [HLX] acquired Remington in July 2006. Remington’s assets eventually formed the basis of Talos Energy.

In 2008 Mr. Bate joined MUFG Union Bank N.A. as a vice president of energy capital markets. He was later promoted to director in recognition of his contributions to the bank's growth. In 2018 he joined ING Bank’s energy division, where, as Head of Technical Services he oversaw valuations of the bank’s $4 billion energy portfolio. 

Mr. Bate holds an MBA from UT Dallas, a bachelor's degree from Montana Tech, and is a registered Professional Engineer.
