Leadership Dialogue with Vicki Hollub and Chris Ashton
According to nearly all expert scenarios, direct air capture and other carbon capture methods will need to be widely deployed for the world to achieve net zero targets by mid-century. Occidental and Worley are partnering on a large-scale direct air capture facility in the Permian Basin with an expected startup in 2024 – the first of many facilities that industry is planning to meet the dual challenge of providing more energy while lowering emissions. In this CERAWeek Conversation, Vicki Hollub, President and CEO of Occidental, and Chris Ashton, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Worley, share their visions for scaling direct air capture and the transition of traditional oil and gas players into broader carbon management companies. Speakers Chris Ashton, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Worley Vicki Hollub, President and CEO, Occidental Chair Daniel Yergin, Vice Chairman, IHS Markit
