Denbury files for CO2 pipeline permit at Ascension Clean Energy

A subsidiary of Denbury Resources has filed for a permit to build a CO2 pipeline at Clean Hydrogen Works’ blue hydrogen-ammonia facility in Louisiana.

Denbury Gulf Coast Pipelines has filed for a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to build a CO2 at the proposed Clean Hydrogen Works Ascension Clean Energy project.

According to the permit application, Denbury is proposing to install and maintain an approximate 1.2-mile long, 20-inch carbon dioxide pipeline. 

The proposed project would utilize an approximate 75-foot-wide right-of-way (50-foot permanent, 25-foot temporary construction). The project purpose is to connect Denbury’s existing Green Pipeline system to the proposed CHW Ascension Clean Energy Project. The proposed connection would be used to capture and sequester carbon dioxide that would normally be released to the atmosphere during the proposed facility operations. The proposed project would have a capacity of approximately 360 million standard cubic feet per day. “

The ACE project is expected to produce 7.2 million metric tons of clean hydrogen-ammonia annually at a projected cost of $7.5bn. The project seeks to capture up to 98% of CO2 emissions from its processes.

MOL Clean Energy last year took an equity stake in the project. Other shareholders are CHW, Denbury, and Hafnia.
