Greencore CO2 Pipeline EA Available for Review
from BLM Casper Field Office


The Greencore carbon dioxide (CO2) Pipeline Environmental Assessment (EA) is now available for review from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Casper Field Office. The EA is available online at:  www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/cfodocs.html

Greencore Pipeline Company, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Denbury Resources, Inc. is proposing a 231 mile 20-inch liquid CO2 pipeline from the Conoco Phillips Lost Cabin gas plant in Fremont County, Wyo. to the Belle Creek oil field in Montana. The CO2 transported by the pipeline will be used for enhanced oil recovery at the Belle Creek oil field.

Pipeline construction would occur in portions of Fremont, Natrona, Johnson, and Campbell counties in Wyoming, and in Powder River County, Montana. Construction activities would include clearing and grading, trenching, pipe laying, backfilling and grading, cleanup and reclamation, hydrostatic testing, and operation of the pipeline. Project disturbance would include up to a 100-foot right of way, temporary use areas, and temporary upgrading of some access roads.
