Such a solution would involve infrastructure to transport and permanently store carbon dioxide captured by various industrial target sources in the greater Port of Corpus Christi area.

The GLO has taken steps toward decarbonization by issuing a request for proposals from entities interested in constructing carbon storage infrastructure on GLO lands in Jefferson County.
Port of Corpus Christi boasts a high density of industrial carbon dioxide target sources and an extensive network of existing pipeline infrastructure.
In addition, the authority owns a full transect of land from its customers’ fence lines out to GLO waters in the Gulf of Mexico.
