Tallgrass was recently awarded a state grant to fund the development of a commercial-scale CO₂ sequestration hub in the Denver-Julesburg (D-J) Basin in eastern Wyoming.

“This project can accelerate the state’s goal to be net negative in CO₂ emissions by importing and sequestering CO₂, and benefit the broader Rocky Mountain and Midwest regions,” Kyle Quackenbush, segment president, commented in a company release on Jan. 20.

Last March, Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon introduced the mid-century goal of making Wyoming net negative in CO₂ emissions. In order for Wyoming—the top coal mining state in the U.S.—to achieve the ambitious target, Gordon is urging the development of hydrogen and carbon capture technology.
