Tallgrass has entered an agreement with Project Canary to develop a program for the independent monitoring and sequestered carbon volume verification at its Eastern Wyoming Sequestration Hub project.
The agreement between the two companies advances Tallgrass’ commercial-scale sequestration hub project previously announced in January and builds on the relationship established between Project Canary and Tallgrass in 2021 through the Rockies Express Pipeline (REX).
“Precise measurement and validation of sequestered volumes is a critical component of a successful, commercial-scale CO2 sequestration hub,” said Kyle Quackenbush, Tallgrass segment president, in a Feb. 9 statement. “Project Canary and its team of climate scientists and engineers provide critical expertise in this project’s development, which will help advance broadly shared decarbonization and clean energy goals.”
“The Tallgrass team demonstrates what the net-zero measurement economy demands, bold action to verify that every molecule of CO2 put underground stays underground. Their leadership is what a net-zero future needs,” said Chris Romer, CEO and cofounder of Project Canary. “Advancing assessment across the entire energy value chain, from upstream production to midstream transportation and ultimately sequestration, has the potential to revolutionize decarbonization efforts and accelerate progress toward net-zero.”
Tallgrass is a leading energy infrastructure company focused on safely, reliably and sustainably delivering the energy and services that fuel homes and businesses and enable quality of life.
