FACT SHEET: A Case for Carbon Capture, Utilization and Sequestration Technologies

Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage or Sequestration (CCUS) encompasses a set of proven technologies that permanently remove CO2 from our atmosphere, predominantly sequestering it securely underground. CCUS is a more cost-effective way than most to address climate change and will help California be a “Climate Leader,” if it can significantly catch up with the rest of the world.

The oil and natural gas industry is at the forefront of CCUS and stand ready to tackle this immense challenge and significantly increase the deployment. The industry has the people and leaders with the right expertise and experience to identify and evaluate the subsurface for safe storage of CO2, manage large-scale permitting of projects, efficiently procure materials and manage supply chains, construct large-scale capital-intensive projects, and safely operate complex facilities.
