Offshore energy company Talos Energy has won bidding for the Texas General Land Office’s (GLO) Jefferson Country, Texas carbon storage site near Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas.
The bidding was won by Talos in partnership with carbon capture and storage (CCS)-focused project management company Carbonvert, seeing the company become part of a select group of domestic independent energy companies with a physical project site for carbon sequestration and storage.
