The world requires a diversified use of all sources of energy, each of which has a role to play in the future. At Halliburton, we deliver value to the broader energy landscape. Our work is focused in three spaces:

  • We provide goods and services to help our customers reduce the emissions footprint of their operations
  • We put our core competencies to work to deliver solutions to low-carbon energy projects such as CCUS and geothermal energy
  • Through Halliburton Labs, we help early-stage companies in emergent energy sectors scale as we learn about where we can strategically engage new markets

Our innovation sustainability commitments

  • Lead the industry in innovation and conscientious stewardship of global resources
  • Provide solutions that support decarbonizing our customers’ production base

Lowering the carbon intensity of our customers' oil and gas operations

Halliburton helps our customers lower the carbon intensity of their operations through innovative, data-driven solutions in the full well lifecycle. The oil and gas industry provides affordable, reliable energy that is necessary for the global society and its growth. The path toward a lower carbon future includes hydrocarbons produced more efficiently and with a reduced carbon footprint.

Our approach to sustainability is embedded in our new technology development process and customer collaboration. We develop and deliver solutions that help our customers reduce emissions, maximize their assets, and build a sustainable future.

Digital emissions calculations

In 2023, we integrated the Envana™ emissions data management software with our service delivery workflows and equipment sensors. This integration was accomplished in several product service lines and enables us to generate reliable, repeatable, and detailed emissions data for jobs executed by these product service lines. Halliburton uses this data to report verifiable emissions data, collaborate with customers to identify opportunities to reduce emissions, and inform our product development.

Sustainability in the product development process

All new product-related research and development at Halliburton follows LIFECYCLE, our technology development process. LIFECYCLE's steps consider, among other factors, ways to minimize and quantify potential sustainability-related impacts. It is a rigorous, interdisciplinary, and collaborative stage-gate product development process that facilitates successful technology commercialization.

In 2023, we simplified how we identify products or services that help our customers reduce emissions and standardized how we qualify environmental impact early in the technology development process. We also improved our process controls, which monitors our project launches from inception to commercialization.

If a product or service is determined to have a favorable sustainability impact during the LIFECYCLE process, it is then classified in one of the following categories:

  1. CO2e footprint reduction
  2. Direct/indirect input (i.e, electricity, raw materials, or logistics) and/or waste reduction
  3. CO2e footprint assessment and/or emissions mitigation
  4. Low Carbon Solutions

Low Carbon Solutions

We saw significant growth in 2023 as the global project opportunities for CCUS and geothermal energy increased. Our Low Carbon Solutions offerings apply our experience and preexisting technologies to develop and execute our customers' projects. We include a few highlights below.

CCUS highlights

Halliburton provides solutions that help our customers analyze risk in complex CCUS projects. We offer tools that help companies understand the geological characteristics of a potential storage site. Our cementing and completions product lines offer a range of corrosion-resistant solutions that customers can use to construct storage wells.

Halliburton's Neftex® FairwayFinder™ software uses an informed approach to identify and screen potential storage sites. Our wellbore evaluation technologies, such as our IntelliSat™ pulsed neutron logging service, provide accurate assessments of carbon/oxygen saturation — a critical step before CO2 injection. A range of formation pressures can be collected when these technologies are paired with our Reservoir Description Tool (RDT™) formation tester, which provides information related to storage and containment quantification.

Measurement, monitoring, and verification (MMV) is a required step in storing injected CO2 underground. Halliburton's solutions include tools that facilitate accurate MMV of formation pressures and temperatures, remote data access, and storage and leak detection alerts. Our DataSphere® continuous monitoring suite delivers subsurface monitoring capabilities. The suite also collects live wellbore data that aids injection and reservoir model enhancement to fulfill CCUS MMV requirements.

Geothermal energy highlights

Global demand for sustainable heat and electricity has led to growth in conventional geothermal projects and advancements in geothermal systems. These advanced systems allow for geothermal energy production in areas without ideal geological conditions for conventional geothermal applications.

Halliburton's technology portfolio, combined with our experience in the geothermal space, positions us to meet the growing geothermal energy market's demands. Our integrated and comprehensive approach to the geothermal project lifecycle delivers a low-cost-per-megawatt solution for our customers. From subsurface software, well construction, and artificial lift to well interventions, Halliburton has a portfolio of products and services to support operators in the geothermal sector. We develop new technologies to drive performance and reliability in this high-temperature, high-pressure environment to make geothermal energy more accessible and affordable.
