The U.S. Gulf Coast and shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico are ideal locations to use CCS safely and effectively because of the geology and proximity to refining and petrochemical corridors. Bayou Bend CCS aims to help U.S. industries reduce their carbon Intensity and positively impact the livelihoods of people who work along the Gulf Coast. Bayou Bend, a joint venture between Chevron, Talos Energy and Carbonvert, is developing a carbon capture and storage facility in Southeast Texas that could provide storage for more than one billion tonnes of CO2. The project has the potential to reduce emissions from regional industrial facilities by storing CO2 safely and permanently. When complete, Bayou Bend seeks to enable industrial emitters in the Houston and Beaumont/Port Arthur areas to sustain and innovate operations, in support of the jobs those companies provide for Texas families. Bayou Bend has leased approximately 40,000 acres in state waters off the coast of Jefferson County from the Texas General Land Office and another nearly 100,000 acres from private landowners in Jefferson and Chambers Counties and is currently undergoing evaluation and development of the carbon storage sites.
