As an energy leader, we take it as our responsibility to lead the way in the vigorous pursuit of viable, future-looking carbon management worldwide.
Oxy is focused on reducing emissions in our operations and around the world by capturing and retiring more human-made CO2 emissions through our technology and strategic partnerships. We are applying our expertise and critical infrastructure to accelerate CCUS projects around the world, with the goal of developing and delivering lower-carbon products that speed the journey to our global climate targets.
For over 40 years, we have built and operated one of the world’s largest systems to safely inject and permanently store CO2 into geologic reservoirs. Oxy currently stores up to 20 million tons of CO2 per year, primarily from naturally occurring sources. We expect to apply carbon capture to utilize CO2 from human-made sources and the atmosphere.
