Under the terms, EnLink would provide carbon dioxide (CO2) transportation services for OLCV along the Mississippi River corridor from Waggaman to Baton Rouge in Louisiana (LA).
We are pleased to be working with OLCV as we further EnLink’s goal to build and operate a CO2 network connecting emitting facilities and sequestration sites across southern Louisiana, said Barry E. Davis, Chairman, and CEO of EnLink.
EnLink would utilize existing and new build pipelines and related infrastructure to transport CO2 from industrial emitters to OLCV’s planned sequestration facility in Livingston Parish, Louisiana, where OLCV has secured a pore space lease of over 30 000 acres.
The Mississippi River corridor has one of the highest concentrations of industrial CO2 emissions in the US and EnLink is uniquely positioned to serve customers in the region given our extensive pipeline infrastructure already in the ground, Barry E. Davis said.
OLCV, through its 1PointFive business unit, is developing sequestration hubs on the Gulf Coast and across the United States, some of which are expected to be anchored by direct air capture (DAC) facilities.
We look forward to working with EnLink as we advance the development of our sequestration hubs to provide industrial emitters with end-to-end solutions to capture, transport, and permanently store CO2, said Richard Jackson, President, US Onshore Resources and Carbon Management, Operations at OLCV.
The hubs will provide access to high-quality pore space and efficient transportation infrastructure, providing new carbon management solutions.
This collaboration aligns with our strategy to accelerate the path to net-zero not only for ourselves but for other organizations along the Mississippi River corridor looking to do the same, ended Richard Jackson.
