RP Weekly Recap | March 1 – 5


Chevron has announced it will work with a unit of oilfield services giant Schlumberger, as well as with Microsoft and private company Clean Energy Systems, to build a bioenergy plant with carbon capture technology that would produce carbon-negative power in Mendota, California. The bioenergy with carbon capture and sequestration (BECCS) project is planned to convert agricultural waste biomass, such as almond trees, into a renewable synthesis gas that will be mixed with oxygen in a combustor to generate electricity. This is Chevron’s newest project as a growing number of oil corporations look to develop carbon capture technology and other low-carbon energy solutions. Check out this story and more in this week’s recap of all things happening in oil and gas!
