As society advances its efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, our LaBarge facility in southwestern Wyoming, which has been in operation since the mid-1980s, has a role to play.
The multifaceted facility has captured more carbon dioxide than anywhere else in the world to date, and it produces liquefied natural gas (LNG) for homes and businesses and provides approximately 20% of the world’s helium.
LaBarge employs industry experts who drill for oil and gas alongside engineers specializing in the technology needed for the energy transition – making LaBarge a place that’s grounded in the present with an eye to the future. Its expanded carbon capture operation is expected to start up in 2025 as ExxonMobil works to advance carbon capture and storage around the world. CCS will be critical for reducing CO2 emissions as society pushes toward a net-zero future.
In Asia Pacific, ExxonMobil is working with governments, industry, academia and other key stakeholders to assess and develop different CCS opportunities across the region, including in China, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Australia.
