GHG sealing technology for well abandonment and carbon/hydrogen storage

Rockit prevents evidently significant leaks of greenhouse gases for millennia by sealing porous rocks, fractures and fissures deep around wellbores with an acid-resistant mineral. It can be used for CCUS and hydrogen storage, addressing an ongoing global challenge of plugging thousands of existing and new wells quicker, better and safer.
