FORT WORTH, Texas—If there was one message that resonated at Hart Energy’s Carbon Management Forum on July 12, it was that oil and gas companies in the Permian Basin are putting significant efforts in reducing the carbon footprint of their operations.

From flaring to carbon capture, executives during the event held in conjunction with the DUG Permian and Eagle Ford conference and exhibition highlighted their decarbonization efforts, discussing risks and opportunities of the path toward decarbonization.

“Energy transition and decarbonization isn’t a passing fad,” said Jason Offerman, co-founder and COO at carbon management platform Persefoni who kicked off the event. “Those who don’t who take it seriously will struggle to get access to capital. There won’t be any capital if there isn’t any focus on climate impact.”
