In connection with Plains’ long-term focus on sustainability and reducing greenhouse gas emissions across our North American operating footprint, in 2021 the Emerging Energy team was established to position Plains to benefit from emerging energy opportunities.

Our approach to Emerging Energy leverages expertise from areas that span the organization including Commercial, Operations, Energy Management, Sustainability, Environmental Health and Safety, Land, Government Relations and Information Technology. Collectively, the Emerging Energy team is responsible for identifying, evaluating and developing a wide range of energy evolution opportunities from hydrogen and carbon-related infrastructure to solar and low-carbon fuels, with a focus in and around our asset base and operations. Key objectives include optimizing our assets; reducing GHG emissions; repurposing assets; evaluating emerging energy options and developing industry and community relationships, while maintaining a commitment to capital discipline and increasing returns for Plains’ equity holders.
