Matt McQueen, Wyoming Asset Manager

ExxonMobil’s LaBarge facility in Wyoming currently captures more carbon dioxide emissions than any industrial facility in the world. The technology being deployed here can be scaled around the world to help society reduce carbon dioxide emissions. In this series, we will meet some of the LaBarge team and learn about the roles they’re playing in the energy transition to a lower-emission future.

Matt McQueen is ExxonMobil’s asset manager for Wyoming, a role that puts him in charge of the day-to-day workings of the entire LaBarge operation. The site produces natural gas, supplies 20% of the world’s helium supply and has captured more carbon dioxide emissions than any other industrial facility in the world to date.

A trained mechanical engineer with an MBA in finance, Matt began his career in ExxonMobil’s Upstream business, supervising an engineering team advising on offshore drilling locations.

Today, his leadership at LaBarge gives him an important role to play in the energy industry’s present and unique opportunity to help shape its future.

Matt spoke with Energy Factor about what makes LaBarge and its people special, as well as its role in the energy transition.
