EnLink Midstream and Oxy Low Carbon Ventures Sign Letter of Intent for Mississippi River CO2 Transportation Services Agreement
DALLAS, [MAY 3] — EnLink Midstream Operating, LP (EnLink), a subsidiary of EnLink Midstream, LLC (NYSE: ENLC), and Oxy Low Carbon Ventures, LLC (OLCV), a subsidiary of Occidental (NYSE: OXY), today announced they have executed a letter of intent for a Transportation Services Agreement (TSA). Under the terms, EnLink would provide CO2 transportation services for OLCV along the Mississippi River corridor from Waggaman to Baton Rouge in Louisiana.
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.
“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, EnLink Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The Mississippi River corridor has one of the highest concentrations of industrial CO2 emissions in the U.S. and EnLink is uniquely positioned to serve customers in the region given our extensive pipeline infrastructure already in the ground.”
OLCV, through its 1PointFive business unit, is developing sequestration hubs on the Gulf Coast and across the U.S., some of which are expected to be anchored by direct air capture (DAC) facilities. The hubs will provide access to high quality pore space and efficient transportation infrastructure, providing new carbon management solutions.
“We look forward to working with EnLink as we advance 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, U.S. Onshore Resources and Carbon Management, Operations, Oxy. “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.”
