Navigator Cancels Heartland Greenway CO2 Pipeline Project

Navigator CO2 Ventures LLC on Oct. 20 cancelled development of its proposed Heartland Greenway CO2 pipeline project, citing permitting issues, specifically “the unpredictable nature of the regulatory and government processes involved.” 

Navigator first announced plans to construct and operate the CO2 pipeline project in March 2021. If developed as planned, the project would have stretched approximately 1,300 miles across five Midwestern states, transporting CO2 produced at more than 21 ethanol and fertilizer plants to Illinois for permanent secure underground sequestration. The captured CO2 could have also been piped to third parties for use in commercial and/or industrial applications.

The planned footprint of the Heartland Greenway pipeline project spanned areas in South Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa and Illinois. 

In a statement released Oct. 20, Navigator indicated that the development of the pipeline project has been challenging, particularly in South Dakota and Iowa.
