CapturePoint Solutions LLC signed a letter of intent to participate in a feasibility study to capture CO2 emissions from natural gas production facilities in the Haynesville shale, a press release announced on Aug. 4.

It will permanently sequester the emissions at Energy Transfer's CPS Central Louisiana Regional Carbon Storage Hub (CENLA Hub). The hub has the capacity to permanently sequester millions of tons of carbon emissions annually, making it potentially one of the largest onshore deep underground CO2 storage centers in the country.

“The joint project with Energy Transfer could capture millions of tons of CO2 every year from the Haynesville shale natural gas industry to be permanently stored deep underground rather than emitted into Louisiana’s air,” CapturePoint CEO Tracy Evans said in the release.
