Eastern Shelf/Katz Field Project
Construction is complete on Kinder Morgan CO2's Eastern Shelf Pipeline and the Katz oil field project in the eastern Permian Basin of Texas. The new pipeline, a 91-mile, 10-inch diameter CO2 distribution pipeline, and complementary facilities have an initial capacity of 65 million cubic feet per day, with the ability to increase the capacity to 200 million cubic feet per day. Kinder Morgan is now delivering CO2 for injections into a new flood in its Katz Field near Knox City, Texas.
Kinder Morgan anticipates the project will unlock an incremental 25 million barrels of oil to be produced over the next 15 to 20 years from the Katz Field, and will provide a platform for future enhanced oil recovery operations in the region.
