"We're moving beyond outdated methods, ensuring safe and economically feasible operations. With the integration of Envana, we're not just plugging wells, we're optimizing our clients’ sustainability outcomes," says Michael Orr, Founder and CEO of Occlusion Solutions.

The Occlusion Solutions team differentiates itself from traditional decommissioning providers by applying modern technology toward the retirement of oil and gas assets. Leveraging Envana helps support a robust data collection and analytics process that maximizes emissions reduction and enhances economics for Occlusion and its customers. Occlusion utilizes emissions data to quantify, then prioritize, the emissions impact of abandoning any set of wells. Once abandoned, Occlusion applies post-remediation monitoring to validate the successful plugging operation. Finally, operational data is captured, analyzed, and distributed for regulatory compliance and commercialization via carbon credits.




"Our industry is ripe for disruption, and our collaboration with Envana enables us not only to meet but exceed market expectations in emissions management. Our profitability is now intrinsically tied to our commitment to sustainability," added Orr.

Occlusion Solutions leverages its deep industry knowledge and the latest digital solutions, including Envana emissions management SaaS (Software as a Service), to create long-term value. Envana’s comprehensive solution enhances the productivity of plugging operations, optimizes costs, and streamlines end-to-end processes to align with market expectations and emissions management requirements.

"We are thrilled to support Occlusion Solutions in their innovative approach to well retirement. Envana's emissions management SaaS not only ensures compliance but also gives companies a competitive edge, ultimately contributing to their profitability," stated Nagaraj Srinivasan, Lead Board Director of Envana and SVP of Halliburton Landmark, Halliburton Consulting and Halliburton Digital Solutions.

“We’re excited to help tackle the problem of retiring late-life and abandoned oil and gas wells,” stated PR Panigrahi, Managing Director and Head of Energy and Decarbonization Investments Siguler Guff and Lead Board Director of Envana. “The EPA estimates there are 3.7 million abandoned oil and gas wells in the USA; these wells emit a material amount of methane. Envana is proud to partner with Occlusion which is working to address this challenge right in our backyard.”
