Kinder Morgan CO2 transports approximately 1.3 billion cubic feet per day of CO2 to eastern New Mexico, West Texas and southwestern Utah. The primary market for transportation on our CO2 pipelines is to customers, including ourselves, using CO2 for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in mature oil fields. The Cortez Pipeline is our largest CO2 pipeline, stretching 500 miles from southwestern Colorado to Denver city, Texas, and capable of transporting 1.5 billion cubic feet per day.
In addition to CO2 pipelines, Kinder Morgan CO2 owns the Kinder Morgan Wink Pipeline system. The Wink Pipeline is a 450-mile Texas intrastate crude oil pipeline system that allows us to better manage crude oil deliveries from our oil field interests in West Texas. It runs from Kinder Morgan’s SACROC unit in Scurry County, Texas, to a refinery in El Paso, Texas.
