Key Highlights from the CCUS Business Outlook include:

Denbury is uniquely positioned to lead the deployment of CCUS in the U.S. based on its extensive technical expertise and dedicated CO2 assets.

  • The Company’s greater than 1,300 mile dedicated CO2 pipeline network represents ~25% of the total CO2 pipelines in the U.S. With strategic pipeline extensions and the addition of CO2 sequestration sites, Denbury estimates it can expand its Gulf Coast CO2 network capacity to more than 150 million metric tons per year (“Mmtpa”) of CO2.
  • For more than 20 years, Denbury has been transporting and utilizing CO2 in association with its enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operations. Cumulatively, the associated storage of CO2 underground through its EOR operations totals more than 225 million metric tons to date.
  • The Company’s sequestration portfolio spans the U.S. Gulf Coast with planned sites in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. Denbury’s contracted CO2 sequestration potential has increased to approximately 2 billion metric tons following the addition of two new storage sites (one in Mississippi and one in Louisiana).

Denbury estimates that its CO2 transportation & storage service volumes will grow to between 15 and 25 Mmtpa on average in 2026, 30 – 40 Mmtpa in 2028, and 50 – 70 Mmtpa in 2030.

  • The Company’s current CO2 transportation & storage agreements total 20 Mmtpa. The Company’s CCUS business is anticipated to be self-funding beginning as early as 2026/2027.
  • CCUS capital expenditures are projected to average $200 to $250 million from 2023 to 2030, with the highest investment periods expected in 2024 and 2025 as the Company expands its pipeline network and builds out multiple CO2 sequestration sites.
  • 2030 EBITDA1 is expected to range between $650 million and $900 million.

Denbury targets achieving Scope 1, 2, and 32 net negative status by the end of 2030 through increasing amounts of associated and dedicated storage of industrial-sourced CO2. The Company is currently Scope 1 and 2 net negative through storage associated with its use of industrial CO2 in its EOR operations.

1 A Non-GAAP financial measure. See “Statement regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.
2 Scope 3 refers to Scope 3 Category 11 (Use of Sold Products)
