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."
