After working for more than two years on a proposed five-state carbon pipeline project, Navigator CO2 today announced it was cancelling the project due to “the unpredictable nature of the regulatory and government processes involved, particularly in South Dakota and Iowa.”

Matt Vining, CEO of Navigator CO2 remarked, “As good stewards of capital and responsible managers of people, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Heartland Greenway project. We are disappointed that we will not be able to provide services to our customers and thank them for their continued support.”

Vining continued, “I am proud that throughout this endeavor, our team maintained a collaborative, high integrity, and safety-first approach and we thank them for their tireless efforts. We also thank all the individuals, trade associations, labor organizations, landowners, and elected officials who supported us and carbon capture in the Midwest.”

It was also reported this week that Summit Carbon Solutions is delaying the start of its pipeline project by two years and is now expected to begin operations in 2026.
