Pipeline Network

One Powerful Carbon Network

Denbury has the largest pipeline network in the U.S.—and our infrastructure is growing. We currently own or operate over 1,300 miles of carbon dioxide (“CO2”) pipelines, with plans to substantially expand our network to meet the rapidly growing demand for Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (“CCUS”) solutions. Strategically located in close proximity to the high-concentration emissions corridor of the Gulf Coast, and in oil-producing regions of the Rocky Mountains, our pipeline network has the ability to provide a high-capacity, reliable, flexible CO2 transportation and storage system, with significant scale and expandability.

In 2022, Denbury’s pipeline network transported approximately 240 million cubic feet of CO2 from industrial sources per day, for use in our enhanced oil recovery (“EOR”) operations. We plan to increase our usage of industrially sourced CO2 from currently planned or future construction of facilities that plan to implement carbon capture technology. In addition, we are building a portfolio of properties for carbon sequestration, in close proximity to our CO2 pipelines.

Overview

Since 2001, we have acquired or constructed nearly 750 miles of CO2 pipelines in the Gulf Coast, and as of December 31, 2021, we own nearly 925 miles of CO2 pipelines in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.


Pipelines

Green Pipeline

Completion of the large capacity Green Pipeline in 2010 allows for the delivery of CO2 to oil fields all along the Gulf Coast. At the present time, the CO2 flowing in the Green Pipeline is delivered from either the Jackson Dome natural source or existing industrial facilities in Port Arthur, Texas and Geismar, Louisiana. We have the ability to transport more than 16 million metric tonnes per annum (“MMTPA”) of CO2 on the Green Pipeline and currently, we are utilizing ~25% of this capacity. Based on the current and future potential volume of emissions in close proximity to our pipeline, the strategic expansion of this pipeline to transport 2-3x the current capacity, up to ~50 MMTPA of CO2, is being evaluated.

NEJD Pipeline

The NEJD Pipeline transports CO2 from our Jackson Dome field to our EOR operations in Mississippi and Louisiana and ultimately connects to our Green Pipeline near Donaldsonville, Louisiana. The NEJD Pipeline is an integral component of our Gulf Coast CO2 infrastructure, providing the flexibility to deliver CO2 to our EOR operations and potentially, future CCUS permanent sequestration locations. Current capacity of the NEJD Pipeline system is approximately 11 MMTPA.

Additional CO2 pipelines include the Free State, Delta and West Gwinville which deliver CO2 to existing tertiary oil fields.

Pipelines

Greencore Pipeline

The Greencore Pipeline in Wyoming and Montana connects various Rocky Mountain region CO2 sources to the Company’s EOR activities. This 232-mile pipeline begins at the third-party-operated Lost Cabin gas plant in Wyoming and terminates at the Bell Creek Field in Montana. We completed construction of the pipeline in 2012 and received our first CO2 deliveries during 2013. An interconnect between the Greencore Pipeline and an existing third-party CO2 pipeline in Wyoming also enables us to transport CO2 from ExxonMobil’s Shute Creek assets.

CCA Pipeline

The 16-inch 105-mile CCA pipeline, completed in 2021, transports CO2 from the Greencore Pipeline at the Bell Creek Field to our Cedar Creek Anticline EOR fields in eastern Montana and western North Dakota. First CO2 deliveries through the CCA Pipeline occurred in November of 2021.

Beaver Creek Pipeline

The Beaver Creek Pipeline in Wyoming was acquired by Denbury in 2021 in conjunction with the Wind River Basin EOR acquisition. This 46-mile pipeline delivers CO2 to the Big Sand Draw and Beaver Creek EOR fields.
