Kinder Morgan's latest in energy transition

and nuclear news

Good Morning. This is the Sunya Scoop. The newsletter that takes energy transition news and turns it into an easy-to-read email for you. 

Here's what we have for you today:

  • Kinder Morgan's energy transition ventures

  • Navigator CO2's Heartland Greenway project to expand

  • NuScale's nuclear design gets approval

  • KMI has signed a term sheet with Red Cedar Gathering Company to transport and permanently sequester CO2 through KMI's pipelines in the Permian Basin.

  • Red Cedar, a joint venture between Southern Ute Indian Tribe Growth Fund and KMI, will capture CO2 from two natural gas facilities in Southern Colorado, with a target of 400,000 metric tons per year.

  • Construction is ongoing for Kinetrex Energy's $150 million RNG projects in Indiana, expected to be placed in service throughout 2023 and will add 3.5 Bcf of RNG production annually.

  • KMI has decided to convert one of the seven sites acquired from North American Natural Resources into an RNG facility, construction to begin in January 2023.

  • KMI is evaluating the potential for the remaining six sites to generate electricity and create e-RINs (contemplated in the latest EPA proposal) through biogas, which could provide earnings upside opportunities with minimal additional capital investment.

  • Navigator CO2's Heartland Greenway project, one of the world's largest carbon capture, utilization and storage projects, continues to receive broad support and make significant progress.

  • They will be filing a revised permit to expand the scope of the project and accelerate development of storage locations in central Illinois.

  • Navigator's CEO states that there's a growing number of industrial emitters recognizing the value of carbon capture technology and the Heartland Greenway will streamline the process for all parties.
