Capturiant Monthly Newsletter August 24

August 24, 2023



The Capcom Sequestration project is geared towards the prevention of venting and flaring of non-economic associated gas from existing oil wells in West Texas. This specific gas was not considered economical by the producer for recovery due to its high Hydrogen Sulfide content and its distance from a gas sales line. As a result, this gas was being vented and flared on location.

The project aims to sequester this waste stream to prevent environmental release. This is done by gathering the gas to a central point, treating it with a scavenger to reduce its corrosion potential, compressing it, and then injecting it into a depleted oil well. The target well is at the end of its life cycle, making it significantly under-pressured and ideal for methane sequestration. The model predicts the elimination of 328,500 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually for the first five years.

The Wild West of the Carbon Market

One might assume that an industry as important to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as the carbon credit market would be regulated to ensure transparent and trustworthy transactions and business practices, but the reality is that the carbon credit market is in fact the Wild West with little to no government oversight. This unregulated environment increases the risk of fraud and mismanagement, undermines the credibility of the carbon credit system and reduces confidence in the market.

Recent revelations calling into question major forestry credit projects highlight these regulatory shortcomings. Regulation of carbon credits as financial instruments, and of validation bodies and registries as securities institutions, is necessary to move the industry forward.
