Wyoming Files to Establish CO2 Pipeline Cooridor

Governor Matt Mead says a plan to establish pipeline corridors through federal lands is complete. Mead says all of the corridors run parallel to existing pipelines.

The Wyoming Pipeline Authority (WPA) submitted the plan to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management for regulatory approval. These corridors will reduce permitting timeframes and could expedite enhanced oil recovery in making CO2 available to old oil fields. According to a news release, the pipeline plan is part of Governor Mead’s Energy Strategy.

The Bureau of Land Management application seeks to establish 1,150 miles of pipeline corridors on federal lands in Wyoming. The project called the Wyoming Pipeline Corridor Initiative (WPCI) would cross federal lands in most of Wyoming’s counties and involve nine BLM field offices.

Individual project proponents would construct and operate pipelines using the approved corridors. It is expected that some of the corridors would be available as soon as approvals are issued. Permitting will involve public review and input.
