Many countries and corporations view carbon capture, utilization and storage as one of the main technologies available to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from extensive use of fossil fuels. Investment into carbon capture technologies is growing rapidly as is government support around the world. Utilizing depleted oil and gas fields that are proven traps to permanently sequester CO2 and other GHGs is also increasing.
We have been at the forefront of thinking on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) for over a decade, having advised on a number of early CCS demonstration projects in Canada, Australia and the UK.
Our global team brings our carbon market and environmental lawyers who are knowledgeable on the relevant Conventions such as UNCLOS, together with our leaders in project finance, offshore oil and gas, pipelines, and mineral and water rights to help clients develop and finance carbon capture projects across the globe.
