Carbon Capture For Houston: ExxonMobil Assembles a Team

  • While many questions remain, ExxonMobil has attracted an impressive roster, and from a skills perspective, can complete the Houston carbon capture project.
  • The price tag looks exorbitant to us, and even if 45Q moves to the $85 proposed in the “CLEAR” bill, the returns on the overall project will likely be very low.  
  • First-mover advantages are likely limited in polyethylene, given four large and one small producer on the “team”, but those absent may still face disadvantages.   
  • This collaboration unites a few fierce competitors, indicating how costly and difficult carbon abatement will be. This project needs the proper support.
  • Otherwise, this week; more storm-related problems, runaway natural gas prices, and a setup for further raw material, logistic, and energy-driven inflation  

Last week we discussed 25 Chemicals and related products and 111 Companies.
