HOUSTONBracewell LLP represents Navigator CO2 Ventures LLC in its necessary board approvals to proceed with its proposed carbon capture pipeline system, the Heartland Greenway. Having successfully reached the initial approval phase, Navigator has commenced the process to obtain all the necessary permits to construct the Heartland Greenway and start initial system commissioning during late 2024 and into early 2025.

The Heartland Greenway’s first phase is projected to commence initial service in early 2025 and span approximately 1,300 miles across five Midwest states to nearly 20 receipt points. In parallel, multiple permanent sequestration locations are being actively developed in south-central Illinois, where the project will utilize specific intervals of the well understood Mt. Simon formation for the safe, permanent sequestration of its carbon dioxide. This combined scope will enable Heartland Greenway to transport and sequester up to 15 million metric tons per year once fully expanded.
