Denbury, Inc. announced a definitive agreement with a large landowner in southwest Louisiana for the future development and operation of a dedicated CO2 sequestration site. The 31,000 acre land position is located in Allen, Beauregard and Vernon Parishes, approximately 25 miles north of Denbury’s Green Pipeline. Denbury estimates that there is potential to store up to 250 million metric tons of CO2 in the site, with first injection planned as early as 2026. The strategic location of the site provides nearby storage potential for the heavy industrial areas of Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas, and Lake Charles, Louisiana. In close proximity to the dedicated CO2 sequestration site is more than 60 million metric tons per year of existing emissions.
Nik Wood, Denbury’s Senior Vice President, CCUS, commented, “Denbury has unparalleled experience and CO2 pipeline infrastructure in the U.S. Gulf Coast for the transportation and storage of CO2. Today’s announcement adds an important piece in the development of our CCUS business, providing another significant future storage site in close proximity to our pipeline infrastructure, which naturally expands the reliability and future capacity of our network. We look forward to developing this site as we aim to provide the most efficient and reliable CO2 platform in the U.S.”
