  • Super Pollutants Oil & Gas Methane: Mapping the Path to a 65% Reduction

    To tackle climate change, we must dramatically reduce methane emissions. In the short-term, methane is >80 times more potent than CO2. Methane accounts for a quarter of today’s global warming, yet levels in the atmosphere are surging. Quickly and significantly reducing methane pollution is one of the most important opportunities we have to slow the

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy The Need for an Adequate Commence Construction Window for 45Q Federal Tax Credits for CCUS

    Developing a carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) project can take as long as five years and require investments of close to $50 million before construction can begin. To take advantage of the current 45Q tax credit, construction on a CCUS project must commence before January 1, 2024. Despite the fact that 45Q was signed […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy CO₂ EOR Yields a 37% Reduction in CO₂ Emitted Per Barrel of Oil Produced

    Utilization of anthropogenic CO2 in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is a well-understood and verifiable process that can deliver CO2 emission reductions. According to life cycle analysis done by the International Energy Agency (IEA), which includes impacts from potential increase in oil consumption, each metric ton of CO2 utilized in EOR nets a 0.63 ton emission reduction. Said another […]
