Talos Energy Inc. recently unveiled plans to develop a carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) project immediately adjacent to the Freeport LNG export facility in Texas that Talos President and CEO Timothy S. Duncan said could be the first active carbon sequestration project on the U.S. Gulf Coast.

One of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico’s largest public independent producers, Talos Energy launched an initiative earlier this year to target carbon capture and storage opportunities along the U.S. Gulf Coast. These have included being selected as the operator of the only major offshore carbon sequestration hub in the U.S. to be located in Jefferson County, Texas.

“We are excited to announce this project with Freeport LNG, a global LNG leader,” Duncan commented in a joint release on Nov. 15. “The entrepreneurial collaboration of our teams allowed for the development of a unique, stand-alone carbon sequestration solution, which provides proof of concept to our broader CCS portfolio and is complementary to our larger hub-based project in Jefferson County.”
