Fred Eames

Hunton Andrews Kurth

Fred has been working on CCUS for 15 years.  He represents clients on CCUS projects and strategy, and advocates for clients before federal agencies and Congress regarding rulemakings, permitting and legislation. Fred has built trust by delivering solutions that blend a keen understanding of a client’s business, the law in question and the policy considerations that underpin it.

Clients trust Fred for his insightful and practical know-how acquired from years spent as Counsel to the US House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee, and his nearly 25 years in private practice advising industrial clients. That experience significantly informs his energy and environmental advocacy, where he works on CCUS, climate change, electricity and energy policy, environmental risk management, cybersecurity, critical infrastructure and infrastructure permitting, and waste disposal issues.

Fred has spearheaded the formation of industry groups focused on the expansion of CCUS and currently chairs the CCUS Consortium’s Legal and Regulatory Committee. He is involved with several CCUS projects, has authored federal CCUS risk management and regulatory legislation, prepared comments on federal regulations, and drafted legislation for several states.  He is a frequent speaker on CCUS issues.
