Keeping Methane in the ground
MAKE A LOCAL IMPACT
A science-first approach to cleaning up American oilfields. ClimateWells plugs oil and gas wells and creates verified emission reduction projects in the carbon market.
Why does it matter?
"Marginal oil and gas wells make up less than six percent of production but over 50% of all oilfield methane emissions."
Marginal oil and gas wells in the Onshore U.S.
Wells in Latino and Indigenous Communities
New orphaned or abandoned oil and gas wells
Plugging and wellsite reclamation stops emissions and restores the native landscape.
Must stay in the ground to keep global heating below 1.5°C

Plugging a well creates permanent carbon storage.
