Pecan Island CCS

Class VI

CF Industries, a leading global manufacturer of hydrogen and nitrogen products, has entered into the largest-of-its-kind commercial agreement with ExxonMobil to capture and permanently store up to 2 million metric tons of CO2 emissions annually from its manufacturing complex in Louisiana. Start-up for the project is scheduled for early 2025 and supports Louisiana’s objective of net zero CO2 emissions by 2050.

  • CF Industries to capture up to 2 million metric tons of CO2 from operations
  • ExxonMobil to develop 125K-acre CO2 storage location in Vermilion Parish
  • ExxonMobil agreement with EnLink Midstream to transport CO2 through pipeline network

As previously announced, CF Industries is investing $200 million to build a CO2 dehydration and compression unit at its Donaldsonville, Louisiana, facility to enable captured CO2 to be transported and stored. ExxonMobil will then transport and permanently store the captured CO2 in secure geologic storage it owns in Vermilion Parish. As part of the project, ExxonMobil has signed an agreement with EnLink Midstream to use EnLink’s transportation network to deliver CO2 to the permanent geologic storage.

In February 2024, Enlink and ExxonMobil announced that they have agreed to reassess the Pecan Island project’s near-term role, with the expectation that other joint CCS opportunities along the Gulf Coast, and beyond the Mississippi River corridor, may be prioritized ahead of the Pecan Island project.
