Houston-based Talos, whose upstream exploration is focused in the Gulf of Mexico, is developing several carbon capture, sequestration and utilization (CCUS) projects for the Gulf Coast. Talos and Carbonvert last year took the sole winning bid in a Texas General Land Office (GLO) sale for their potential Bayou Bend CCS site in Jefferson County.
