NOIA/OOC Offshore CCUS Symposium

June 9, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The U.S. Gulf of Mexico offshore region provides tremendous advantages for an emerging U.S. CCUS sector. The Gulf of Mexico is characterized by vast geologic prospects for CO2 storage, extensive and established energy infrastructure along the Gulf Coast and throughout the outer continental shelf, a proximity to industrial centers for capturing emissions, and an assessable engineering and energy knowledge base and workforce, along with associated RD&D capabilities.

Join the National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) and the Offshore Operators Committee (OOC) on offshore carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) symposium in Houston, Texas!

Date: Thursday, June 9th, 2022
Location: The Woodlands Country Club, 100 Grand Fairway Dr., The Woodlands, TX 77381
