Environmental services company Ozona has leased over 5,500 contiguous acres of pore space in Loving County, Texas, to drill multiple commercial carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration wells in the Permian Basin.
The acquisition increases Ozona’s CCS lease position to over 10,000 contiguous acres with an estimated pore space capacity of 120 metric tonnes. The company will start the federal and state permitting process to drill and operate multiple CO2 disposal wells across its acreage.
