SLB plans to inject almost $400 million into carbon capture company

SLB stock remained stable during early trading on Thursday. In 2022, Schlumberger rebranded as SLB to showcase its increasing focus on lower-carbon technologies. The company aims to generate $3 billion in revenue from its new energy business by the end of the decade, with CEO Olivier Le Peuch highlighting carbon capture and storage as a key driver of this target.

Carbon capture involves capturing carbon dioxide emissions from industrial processes and storing them deep underground. Aker Carbon Capture has developed a method that uses water and organic amine solvents to absorb carbon dioxide emissions. The International Energy Agency has emphasized the importance of carbon capture in achieving net-zero emissions globally by 2050, cautioning against overreliance on the technology within the oil and gas industry.

Despite existing for years, the industry has faced challenges deploying carbon capture technology at a commercial scale due to its cost and complexity. The IEA has stressed the need for the industry to prove that carbon capture and storage can operate effectively at scale, highlighting its history of underperformance. As efforts to address climate change intensify, carbon capture continues to be seen as a crucial tool for reducing emissions in challenging sectors such as cement manufacturing.
