How-to for Frackers: Increase Oil Production, Lower Carbon Emissions

FORT WORTH, Texas—As consumers continue to face higher energy prices, operators are looking for solutions that will allow them to increase production while still lowering their carbon emissions.

Sustainable oil and gas operations are key to driving ESG momentum while still delivering reasonably priced energy, according to speakers at Hart Energy’s DUG Permian Basin and Eagle Ford conference and exhibition last month. While operating sustainably isn’t a new concept for shale producers, it is proving challenging as the government pushes for ramped-up production to offset Russian oil imports, which the U.S. embargoed in March.

“To quote Mark Carney in a recent interview he had with the Financial Times, the climate doesn’t care where emissions come from,” said Dr. Megan Pearl, director of technology at Locus Bio-Energy Solutions who joined Catalyst Energy Services COO Seth Moore on a panel discussing how their companies are helping corporations perform more sustainably while increasing fracking operations.
