Corpus Christi reviews carbon storage potential

The authority at the Port of Corpus Christi said September 1 it signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop a carbon storage facility in the region.

The MoU with the Texas General Land Office, the state’s land manager, calls for the joint development of a carbon storage solution that aligns with national climate goals.


The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.

“Such a solution would involve infrastructure to transport and permanently store CO2 captured by various industrial target sources in the greater Port of Corpus Christi area,” the port authority stated.

The port in August signed an MoU with Howard Midstream Energy Partners, which operates the area’s Javelina refinery. The port authority said the Javelina refinery has the capacity to produce as much as 60mn ft3/d of hydrogen through a combination of so-called blue production processes and from the utilisation of waste gas.

The land office, for its part, issued a recent call for proposals to study potential carbon storage infrastructure elsewhere in Texas.

Sean Strawbridge, the CEO at the port authority, said the MoU with the land office sends a message that Texas is serious about the evolving energy landscape.

“The energy transition is a strategic focus in hitting both commercial and environmental targets for the Port of Corpus Christi,” he said.
