Tallgrass wins state grant for Wyoming CCS project
US energy infrastructure company Tallgrass said January 20 it had received a grant from the Wyoming Energy Authority to underpin the development of a commercial-scale CO2 sequestration hub in the Denver-Julesburg basin in the eastern portion of the state.
The grant is in addition to the company’s proposed direct investment in the Eastern Wyoming Sequestration Hub project, which would capture, transport and store CO2 from across multiple states.
“The Eastern Wyoming Sequestration Hub project is a strong addition to our existing decarbonisation initiatives and aligns with our broader clean energy strategy,” said Kyle Quackenbush, segment president at Tallgrass. “This project can accelerate the state’s goal to be net negative in CO2 emissions by importing and sequestering CO2, and benefit the broader Rocky Mountain and Midwest regions.”
Tallgrass expects to use the grant in 2022 to fund development activities and drill a characterisation well to support its anticipated permit applications for the project.
