As part of the Bayou Bend CCS project, Worley will be responsible for designing and implementing effective carbon capture technologies that can be integrated seamlessly into existing industrial processes.

The Bayou Bend initiative, a collaboration involving Chevron, Equinor, and TotalEnergies, aims to store industrial carbon dioxide emissions from southeast Texas, utilizing 140,000 acres of underground space near the US Gulf of Mexico coast.
