Direct Air Capture – What Does It Mean?

In an effort to improve climate change, a Houston based oil & gas exploration and Production Company (OXY) is designing the first “Direct Air Capture” plant in the Permian Basin. The purpose is to remove harmful carbon dioxide from the sky and inject it into the ground which would in turn assist with oil production. This facility will be based somewhere in West Texas. According to (OXY), they expect to start development by 2021 and is expected to be in production by 2023.
