Ogilvy has signed on to represent Gulf Coast Sequestration, which wants to build and run the nation’s premier site to capture CO₂ and store it underground.
Located in Lake Charles, LA, the site is close to one of the nation’s busiest industrial corridors featuring some of America’s largest refineries and manufacturing facilities.
The acreage is home to a working cattle ranch and GCS pledges that it will co-exist in an environmentally friendly fashion with the area’s farmland and wetlands,
The company has begun the process of securing an EPA permit and is studying what other government approvals are necessary to develop, construct and operate the sequestration operation.
Ogilvy has principals Gordon Taylor, Chris Giblin and Conrad Lass working the GCS business.
WPP owns Ogilvy.
