Department Of Energy Funds Omnia Midstream Study On CSS Feasibility In Delaware Basin

Department Of Energy Funds Omnia Midstream Study On CSS Feasibility - Carbon Herald

Omnia Midstream Partners, a prominent energy company, has recently announced that it has successfully obtained funding from the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) to conduct a comprehensive study on the feasibility of a proposed carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) project. 

The study, funded with a little less than $9 million, will employ the expertise of Omnia Midstream to assess the viability of creating a CCS center within the Texas region of the Delaware Basin. 

The Department of Energy’s FECM office chose Omnia‘s Permian Regional Carbon Storage (PRCS) Hub project as part of the Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise (CarbonSAFE) Initiative.

The PRCS Hub aims to tackle the storage requirements for carbon dioxide in one of the busiest oil and gas basins in the United States. The project entails building a network of CO2 emitters, CO2 pipelines, and CCS solutions that will be established across the Delaware basin. 

By engaging in these efforts, the area will be able to responsibly elevate its level of production, ultimately resulting in the creation of employment opportunities and the generation of income for the communities located in West Texas and Southeastern New Mexico.

The financial support from the FECM office will undoubtedly play a significant role in enabling Omnia Midstream to thoroughly study the potential of this CCS plan.

Carbon capture and sequestration technology holds immense promise for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and addressing climate change concerns.

By capturing and storing carbon dioxide emissions generated by industrial activities, CCS centers can substantially reduce the release of harmful gases into the atmosphere.

Representatives from Omina Midstream claim that the company has already identified its initial site for Class VI sequestration and has obtained commitments from important and relevant landowners. The National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) places this project in phase two of its CarbonSAFE Initiative.
