Quantifying Texas’s CCUS Dominance I Carbon Innovation

bySmayan Sharma

The Inflation Reduction Act spurred a surge of project announcements and developments on the molecules side of the energy transition, creating numerous opportunities for capital deployment. Texas’ dominance in this nascent landscape is evident, and Enverus Foundations™ – Carbon Innovation quantifies this by providing centralized access and daily updates to more than 3,000 global energy transition projects.

Some 85% of CCUS projects are still pre-operational, but a massive wave of development is on the horizon. By 2030, Enverus Intelligence Research expects 700 projects to launch, adding 1.2 Gtpa of capacity and opening doors for new collaborations. The U.S. is at the forefront, commanding 42% of global capacity. Texas alone holds a staggering 494 mtpa, accounting for 46% of the nation’s storage and 45% of its capture capacity. Texas further capitalizes on CCUS infrastructure by planning to produce 4.2 mtpa of blue hydrogen, representing 58% of U.S. planned blue hydrogen production.
