While our nation works toward diversifying its energy portfolio in order to align with a Clean Energy Revolution, fossil fuels are still expected to meet a majority of energy demands for decades to come. As a result, oil & gas companies must continue to focus on their ability to manage their carbon footprint.
In an effort to control carbon emissions, the recently passed infrastructure bill has budgeted over $12 billion to carbon capture and removal. Subsequently, we are seeing energy powerhouses combine efforts to capitalize on these projects.
What is Carbon Capture?
Carbon capture refers to the gathering and permanent storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) to prevent it from releasing into the atmosphere. Companies across the globe are testing new technologies that eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels.

Texas, Louisiana, and California are responsible for more than half of the United States’ oil refining. It’s no surprise that Texas is the top crude oil and natural gas producing state in the nation. In 2020, Texas accounted for 43% of the nation’s crude oil production and 26% of its marketed natural gas production.
Marketing & Brand Manager
Unemployment rates plummeted to just 4.2% in November, leaving employers unable to fill crucial roles. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we saw a drop from 4.6% to 4.2% with 1.1 million Americans reporting they found jobs last month. As the number of job openings increases, and the number of available candidates decreases, employers are turning to outside staffing resources for help.
