Repsol SA, Crescent Midstream LLC, Cox Operating LLC, and Carbon Zero US LLC earlier this month formed a partnership to develop a hub offshore Grand Isle, La., for permanent carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. The carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) project will repurpose Cox offshore infrastructure, currently consisting of more than 600 wells in 66 fields.
Crescent Midstream has completed initial front-end engineering and design for a 110-mile CO2 pipeline from Geismar, La., to Grand Isle, using existing Crescent pipeline rights-of-way.
In conjunction with its partners in the CCS hub, Carbon Zero recently applied to the US Department of Energy’s CarbonSAFE program for a spot in one of its proposed carbon dioxide sequestration pilots.
The companies describe the project as one of the Gulf of Mexico’s largest CCS developments.
