Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is critical in addressing climate change. As greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise, developing new methods to lessen their impact on our planet has become more important than ever. While there are still challenges to be tackled,  CCS is steadily progressing towards wider adoption.

Listen in as Loren Long, Business Development Leader & Strategist facilitating the critical factors of successful CCS & upstream projects, joins the show to discuss the state of CCS.

Snippets From The Episode

  • "It is going to be incredibly difficult to make meaningful, progress in fighting climate change if CCS is not involved." - Loren Long
  • "The trend I think we're going to see on the transportation side is just shorter runs of the pipelines and looking for more localized solutions, which in a lot of ways is probably a better outcome anyway." -Loren Long
  • "It's just nearly impossible to build any pipeline without eminent domain. Buying right of way nowadays is tough!" -Brent Broussard
  • "I don't know how much CO2 relative to the big issue and how much we emit every year. I'm not sure it's a huge percentage that will be put into the ground in my lifetime. But I tell you what, I want to be a part of saying, "Look, I blazed the trail." - Loren Long
