Chevron and Jera to Explore CCS Projects in the USA and Australia

Chevron and Jera to Explore CCS Projects in the USA and Australia

Chevron New Energies, a division of Chevron USA Inc., and Jera have signed an MoU to collaborate on carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects in the United States and Australia, Chevron announced on 7 March. This MoU expands on the LNG relationship the firms have and demonstrates their commitment to advancing lower carbon solutions. 

The MoU builds on the firms’ November 2022 announcement to co-develop low-carbon fuels in Australia and study liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC) in the United States. 

“We have a long-standing LNG relationship with JERA that continues to progress, with the intent of bringing affordable, reliable, and ever-cleaner solutions to our customers,” said Chris Powers, Vice President of Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage at Chevron. “We have deep experience and capability in subsurface and are actively developing CCS projects around the world. We understand that without long-term relationships like the one we have with JERA, we wouldn’t be able to develop these resources and move at the pace we have been moving to further our energy transition goals.”

Gaku Takagi, Executive Officer, Head of the Resource Procurement & Investment Division of JERA, said, “Under its ‘JERA Zero CO2 Emissions 2050’ objective, JERA has been working to reduce CO2 emissions from its domestic and overseas businesses to zero by 2050. JERA and Chevron have worked together to bring stable and reliable LNG to our customers over the years, and this CCS collaboration further demonstrates our strong commitment to advance lower carbon solutions. Chevron brings significant expertise and experience in the CCS business, so we look forward to working together as we aim to transition to a decarbonized society.”
